Abstract
 
Description
"In this volume, the authors introduce seven general principles of learning, distilled from twenty-seven years of experience working one-on-one with college faculty. They have drawn on research from a breadth of perspectives (cognitive, developmental, and social psychology; demographics: and organizational behavior) to identify a set of key principles underlying learning - from how effective organization enhances retrieval and use of information to what impacts motivation. These principles provide instructors with an understanding of student learning that can help them see why certain teaching approaches are or are not supporting student learning, generate or refine teaching approaches and strategies that more effectively foster student learning in specific contexts, and transfer and apply these principles to new courses." -- taken from book jacket.
