Why Are We Still Doing That? Positive Alternatives to Problematic Teaching Practices

In this Virtual Author Workshop, William and Pérsida Himmele will be discussing popular questionable teaching practices that persist even though there exists credible evidence that these practices do more harm than good. In this presentation, participants will examine how research informs our understandings of these practices and a variety of positive alternatives that can be used in place of these counterintuitive practices, without the harmful side effects.
