University professors insult cognitive scientists when we ignore their findings

There is something horribly, profoundly, utterly broken about our “system” — both at Georgia Tech and at other universities — if it reduces our students to tears on a semiregular basis.

Cognitive scientists have learned many things about how people learn: how they learn poorly, and how they learn well.

Yet, at the start of every school year, the faculty and staff at colleges and universities gather to collectively slap all those cognitive scientists in their faces and tell them that their life’s work is worthless, since we do so many things that are exactly opposite of how we know people best learn.
