To add a paper, Login.

In the face of criticisms of college students’ study habits or lack thereof, it is important to determine if methods of teaching impact their study habits and academic performance. The information shared in this study is derived from college students’ responses to questions about teaching methods that facilitate their learning and retention of information; methods that motivate them to do research on their own to further their knowledge. Their perceptions will be compared to strategies described in the research literature on good teaching. In this interactive session, a discussion will take place among the researcher and conference attendees to see if there is consensus on what constitutes good teaching.
