Epistemologies of Learning for Administrators: Why Active Learning Doesn’t Increase Student Success and How to Fix It

Active learning theories have revolutionized pedagogical practices, yet how we define learning and knowing has not changed—and graduation rates remain low. This interactive workshop investigates how epistemology shapes assessment of learning and ensures failure. Then we’ll explore how new epistemologies of learning might reshape pedagogy and increase students’ success.
