Die Hard: Common Social and Psychological Phenomena in the Classroom

An overview of common social and psychological phenomena that can be observed from day to day in most classrooms up and down the country, including the Dunning-Kruger Effect and the Ringelmann Effect. During the session, I will focus on the ways in which the phenomena tend to manifest themselves and then propose some simple, practical strategies that can help to mitigate their unwelcome consequences.
