Variety of teaching methods
Teachers as facilitators of student learning, rather than "givers of information"
"When the focus becomes student learning, colleges attain higher rates of student retention and have better prepared graduates than those students who were more traditionally trained (Matlin, 2002; Sternberg & Grigorenko, 2002)."
"Building a strong knowledge foundation...developing learning skills and learner self-awareness"
Build off of what they know
"Focus on student learning...
