About me


Critical thinking does not come easy to everyone, therefore instructors can utilize problem solving tasks to encourage more thinking. This allows for interaction between classmate or groups to pose different opinions, responses and dialog which cultivate learning which does not feel like learning.

Instructors Should have at least 3-5 learning strategies and those strategies should coincide with the learning objective. Also that student need to more than a passive learner to help the develop skill of time management, brain storming with peers and tools of debating and discussing material within small groups and developing a sense of team. Rubics plays a role is assessing student completed material that reduces judgement as an assessment instead as an opinion.

Feedback is valued because it provide comments to aide in improving teaching style and methodology.

Security is when your student have a positive outlook on life and their believe in their personal abilities to preform duties.  Autonomy is the ability to self govern and to have so input or involvement with their activities. Both will enhance the student ability to achieve.

Comment on Sheila Heinert's post: Title IX is an eye opening issue and I agree with Sheila that it was informative.
