21st Century students come to college with widely varying academic skills and motivation levels. Most students think that memorizing information just before examinations is tantamount to learning, and spend considerably less time studying than is commensurate with their grade expectations. Led by Dr. Saundra McGuire, a nationally recognized leader in student learning and author of Teach Students How to Learn (Stylus 2015), this interactive workshop will help attendees understand why many students lack confidence in their ability to learn and have difficulty achieving learning outcomes. Cognitive science research based methods that can be used to facilitate conceptual, transferable learning will be discussed. Participants will develop and action plan for implementation during the spring semester.
