Learning is a never ending processes. As you can see from my previous blogs, we as instructors are blessed with a wide variety of tools to help students become the best learners possible. By treating students as individuals, finding their motivations, improving their self-efficacy, identifying their needs, and putting together a plan, instructors give students their best chance to succeed. These are the strategies that I relate to as an instructor, and believe these are my most effective tools for teaching students.
