Integrating Recent Research in Teaching

In this presentation, Dr. Dong Xie of the University of Central Arkansas will discuss and identify various ways to effectively integrate recent psychological research in teaching. In most cases, recent research on subject matter is only included in recently published textbooks. Dr. Xie will explore why it is important for instructors to integrate recent studies on the subject matter they teach beyond those included only in the textbooks.
