Student Attention and Retention 3 Pack

Student Attention and Retention 3 Pack

Enhance your studentsí concentration and accountability

Capturing and holding studentsí attention is an eternal problem for educators, particularly today. Itís true that students have more distractions and demands on their time, but thatís only part of the explanation. Another more critical reason is the way modern learners see their role in the classroom.

Many students rely solely on the instructor to help them achieve their education outcomes. They assume less responsibility for learning and mastering the course material on their own. They act as passive receivers of information instead of active learners who engage avidly with the instructor, the material, and other students.

Rethinking how educators should teach the course material to motivate students, finding new ways to evaluate how and what students absorb, and helping them reach worthwhile educational goals lie behind this three-part program. The presentations include:

  • How Do Mini-Lectures Improve Student Engagement? discusses discoveries in cognitive and educational psychology about learning and memory and how educators can become more effective at driving student performance.
  • How Can I Get Students to Take Responsibility for Their Own Learning? explores the problem of passive student learning and offers ways to make students take charge of their education.
  • How Do I Create Ideal Assessments for Modern Learners? provides 10 ways for assessing students that go beyond ineffective traditional assessments.

  • Insights for creating short, interactive, and impactful lectures
  • Practical techniques for getting students to be self-reliant and accountable
