Subject: The gap: Where faculty perceptions of teaching and learning disconnect from practice.

Faculty perceptions of teaching and learning and the functionality of those perceptions in the classroom have been studied for over 20 years now. Understanding of these ideas has led to curriculum changes that better engage students and employ faculty understanding. These same studies have shown that there is a gap in implementation of these curriculum that can effect student outcomes. This talk will be an overview of past studies and discuss where this gap may lie. Next step research proposals will also be discussed.
