Why Students Resist Learning: A Practical Model . . .
Why Students Resist Learning: A Practical Model for Understanding and Helping Students, Ed. by Anton O. Tolman and Janine Kremling. Stylus, 2017.
This book examines how student resistance to learning results from multiple intersecting forces, including institutional context, faculty attitudes and behaviors, faculty responses to student behaviors, and cultural forces that shape students’ expectations about college. The writers provide a “systematic multidisciplinary theory” to explain why student resistance happens and to help faculty recognize, diagnose, and address it. Undergraduate students’ views and experiences with resistance add insights to the text. Participants will receive a copy of the book. Lunch will be provided.
There will be two sessions, Monday, February 27th and Thursday, March 2nd. Register for ONE session.
