How Do They Learn to Learn? Teaching Students Effective Strategies for Succeeding in Your Course

Students arrive in our classes with a wide variety of skills, motivational levels, and experiences. Historically, our primary challenge was to cover material and to assess for learning. Over the past decade there has been a steady shift from a "teaching-centered" to a "learning-centered" approach. With this shift comes the added responsibility of helping our students to learn. We still need to cover content and assess learning, but we are now also coaches, tutors, and even motivational speakers at times. In this session we will explore some very easy to implement research-based strategies to help your students be more effective in their learning. In the area of selfish byproducts: better students make our jobs easier and more fun.
