Student Resistance, Faculty Frustration, and How to Improve Student Learning
Student resistance to active learning is ubiquitous in higher education; it is a primary source of fric-tion, contributes to reduced motivation to succeed, and can hamper student learning, especially for first generation and under-represented students. By interpreting student resistance as a communi-cation signal, instead of noise that interferes with teaching, faculty can take effective steps to re-duce resistance through assessment, effective course design, and other changes. Using the Inte-grated Model of Student Resistance (IMSR), this session will help faculty and faculty developers apply this systemic approach to reducing resistance, focusing on environmental forces, prior nega-tive experiences, and institutional culture.
