Misinformation in Teaching and Learning: Myths, Lies and Half-Truths

 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m., Thursday, September 10, 2020, Via Zoom 

This program will explore some commonly held beliefs about teaching and learning.  Decades of research has led to a better understanding of learning and effective instructional strategies.  However, certain teacher beliefs still exist despite evidence to the contrary.  By the end of the program, participants will have had their beliefs challenged, evidence-presented and hopefully, misinformation amended.


  1. Describe evidence-based strategies for effective learning
  2. List ineffective “teacher beliefs” and evidence-based alternatives
  3. Identify practices you can implement to improve student learning

Target Audience:  This program is designed for all teaching faculty, preceptors and trainees.
