Why we don't change as instructors: data vs. emotion

Mary Ellen Weimer writes provocative things about teaching.  Here is one of her articles:

  https://www.facultyfocus.com/articles/teaching-professor-blog/contradictions-think-teaching/?utm_campaign=Faculty%20Focus&utm_source=hs_email&utm_medium=email&utm_content=53632571&_hsenc=p2ANqtz-8SVQawWI_00ymVPLieJX5Cgat5RfP__g57xSbfRHSGrIo5X7XaOb5dHfllcBx3i6eeM_ERe196B96YA7E-K8jN6uwjWg&_hsmi=53632571

Here she is dealing with one of my favorite topics, faculty resistance to improving teaching even when we know there are better ways.  As one of her sources states, faculty approach faculty development the way our students approach learning in the classroom, although we fuss about how students do that.  I saw myself there.  See my post above on my current online learning experience.
