7 Principles for How Learning Works
- Students' prior knowledge can help or hinder learning.
- How students organize knowledge influences how they learn and how they apply what they know.
- Students' motivation determines, directs, and sustains what they do to learn.
- To develop mastery, students must acquire component skills, practice integrating them, and know when to apply what they have learned.
- Goal-directed practice coupled with targeted feedback enhances the quality of students' learning.
- Students' current level of development interacts with the social, emotional, and intellectual climate of the course to impact learning.
- To become self-directed learners, students must learn to monitor and adjust their approaches to learning.
