CONFESSIONS OF A CONVERTED LECTURER
"I thought I was a good teacher until I discovered my students were just memorizing information rather than learning to understand the material. Who was to blame? The students? The material?" Join Dr. Mazur as he explains how he came to the conclusion that the culprit was neither of these. His teaching caused students to fail! He will show how he has adjusted his approach to teaching and how it has improved students' performance significantly.
