Learning to Learn - Guiding Students to Greater Success in Our Courses
Do your students understand the difference between taking your class and what it really means to learn the content, concepts, and skills that form the objectives for the course? As discipline experts and scholars, university faculty commonly make assumptions, not always well-founded, about how students with highly varied backgrounds and preparation approach the assignments and assessments that we place in front of them. This workshop introduces faculty to the research on student learning in college and how to embed activities in your class and assignments that engage students to be learners. Mastering learning practices within the course context improves student achievement and encourages lifelong learning.
