Our profession requires us to be practicing in alignment with what science tells us about learning and more. What we don’t need is to be continually in the sway of myths, superstitions, and misconceptions about how our brains think, work, and learn. Yet, the evidence is strong that these problematic beliefs persist! We need to do better. We’ll discuss a couple of persistent examples, and demonstrate how research advises us. Finally, we’ll talk about practices we should be following going forward.
We’ll look at
- myths that plague our industry
- why we go wrong
- how to be better prepared going forward
