Richard Freishtat discussed the space where educational research, discipline based education research, advances in understanding how pedagogy can happen best and how learning happens best, converge with student experience and expectations. The lecture explored the growing tension between the advances in teaching and learning, how these do not fall in line with student experience and expectation, and how Student Evaluations of Teaching (SETs) essentially punish faculty for advancing and innovating teaching, even in very evidence-based ways.
