As new students enter your institution each year, they bring a new way of thinking and learning with them.

For this reason, you must understand how to mold your teaching to fit the needs of today’s learners. Have you noticed that students are less resilient than they were in the past? Are they less able to think critically? Many instructors would agree.

By applying research on how students learn and intellectually develop, you can foster a growth mindset, improve learning, and ultimately build tougher modern learners.

Are you ready to improve the way students learn in your classroom?
