students and learning?

Faculty On the Right Track
• Peter Incardone on Friday, December 30, 2005 at 11:37
“I have some expertise in student retention, especially for minority
students. Current research holds much promise for improving
retention/graduation rates for today's college students, but one issue
stands out very clearly. Retention rates will improve when
instructional strategies used by college teachers improve! For
example, simply standing in front of a lectern and lecturing for a
single or double hour is not a contemporary, research-based
technique for learning amongst hundreds of thousands of college
students today in America what with our very diverse student
population. Make no mistake about it: to improve retention,
college faculty will, literally, have to be taught HOW to teach
today. Many college faculty, especially Arts/Sciences personnel,
have never had an educational strategies course; they are contentdriven..”
