Are nursing education researchers fooling themselves?

Dr. David Singer of MIT has created a very interesting list of things that educators fool themselves about when assessing education. Some particularly important things mentioned are that we should not just look at mean changes but also the changes of students at the low and high ends of a group. Another concern is that collaborative and interactive learning may counterproductive for some students. He also notes that the effects of technology on learning are not only hard to measure, but that learning itself is hard to define.
