This workshop will draw from our Fall book discussions on Teach Students to Learn, by Sandra Maguire. What is preventing your students from performing according to expectations? McGuire argues that if you teach students how to learn and give them simple, straightforward strategies to use, they can significantly increase their learning and performance. The methods she proposes do not require restructuring courses or an inordinate amount of time to teach. They can often be accomplished in a single session, transforming students from memorizers and regurgitators to students who begin to think critically and take responsibility for their own learning. Let’s discuss some of Maguire’s strategies and how we might apply them to better help our students to learn.
