Description

Today’s students come to college with widely varying academic skills, approaches to learning, and motivation levels. Many students have found it particularly difficult to learn remotely and have lost motivation. This session focused on the importance of helping students acquire simple, but effective, learning strategies based on cognitive science principles. The audience engaged in interactive reflection activities that allowed attendees to experience strategies that significantly improve student success by transforming students’ attitudes about the meaning of learning. Some of you may recall Dr. McGuire’s book, Teach Students How to Learn, which was read for the CTL book club in spring 2020 and is a Stylus Publishing bestseller. Dr. McGuire is the Director Emerita of the Center for Academic Success and retired Assistant Vice Chancellor and Professor of Chemistry at LSU.
