[19.02] Not as I was Taught: A New Faculty Member's Effort to use the Results of Education Research

D. C. Homan (Denison University)

Trying something new can be intimidating and uncomfortable at first. Our students experience this when they first walk into our classrooms, and I have had a similar feeling in trying to use the lessons of education research to teach in a style different from the one that I experienced as an undergraduate. I will describe my efforts use the results of education research in my teaching as a new faculty member at a liberal arts college. I will share what has worked for me, what difficulties I've had, and what I'd like to try in the future.
