Center for Innovation in Teaching & Learning (new)

Are your students doing well? Are they mastering the content in your course? How can you help those who are not? One would think that college students are expert learners, but in fact, many are deficient learners who employ weak strategies in the classroom and while studying. Why? It could be that they are rarely taught how to learn. To be good educators, we must do more than teach content; we must teach our students how to learn. This workshop will present some practical ways in which to accomplish this goal.
