1. Encourages Contacts between Students and Faculty

Frequent student-faculty contact in and out of class is a most important factor in student motivation and involvement:

  • Faculty concern helps students get through rough times.

  • Enhances students’ intellectual commitment

  • Communication technologies that increase access to faculty members help them share useful resources, and provide joint problem solving and shared learning

2. Develops Reciprocity and Cooperation Among Students

  • Learning is enhanced in team effort- collaborative and social, not competitive and isolated.

  • Working with others increases involvement

  • Sharing ideas and responding improves thinking and deepens understanding

3. Uses Active Learning Techniques

Students do not learn just by listening to teachers, memorizing prepackaged assignments, and spitting out answers. Students must:

  • Talk about what learning

  • Write reflectively

  • Relate knowledge to past experiences and apply it to daily lives

Active Learning Techniques Are of 3 Types:

  • Tools and resources for learning by doing

  • Time-delayed exchange

  • Real-time conversation

4. Gives Prompt Feedback

Knowing what students know and do not know focuses their learning. The assessment and feedback should be 3 stages

  • Getting Started: Before course starts students need help in assessing their existing knowledge and competence

  • In Classes: Students need frequent activities to receive feedback on their performance at various points during college,

  • At The End: Students need activity to reflect on their learning, what they still need to know, and how they might assess themselves.

New technologies can provide feedback in many ways especially continuous feedback.

5. Emphasizes Time on Task

  • Learning to use one’s time well is critical for students and professionals.

  • Allocating realistic amounts of time means effective learning for students and effective teaching for faculty.

  • New technologies dramatically improve time on task for students and faculty members.

6. Communicates High Expectations

High expectations are important especially for the poorly prepared, for those unwilling to exert themselves, and for the bright and motivated.

New technologies communicate high expectations explicitly and efficiently with real-life problems, conflicting perspectives, or paradoxical data sets sharpening student’s cognitive skills of analysis, synthesis, application, and evaluation.

Respect Diverse Talents and Ways of Learning

  • Different students bring different talents and styles to college. Teacher and students must learn to respect all students, all talents and utilize best talents for activities.

  • Students need opportunities to show their talents and learn to collaborate with other students with diverse talents.

  • Technological resources produce different methods of learning through powerful visuals, virtual experiences, and tasks requiring analysis, synthesis, and evaluation, with applications to real-life situations.
