Harvey Brightman, PhD Regents Professor Emeritus of Managerial Sciences at Georgia State University 

Why Dr. Johnny can’t teach and Student Jimmie can’t learn

 

Summary:

I will discuss why many college teachers cannot teach effectively. I will demonstrate why it is difficult to know the key attributes of effective teachers without formal training. Then I will present several solutions ranging from comprehensive reform of doctoral training to a few simple ideas that can instantaneously improve student learning and faculty evaluations.

Next I will focus on students and examine why they have difficulty in learning and retaining material. Basically they have not been taught two important concepts in learning and studying – deep learning and active learning. Then I will present several studying methods to accomplish these twin goals.

The session will be interactive with several “mini-quizzes” built into the presentation.
