Teaching & Learning Experience: Logical Learning Outcomes

How will students do well if they are “stressed out” as this impacts all aspects of their lives? Students will learn to harness stress in a positive way and set goals in their interpersonal skill areas to maximize external success skills. This program provides:

·        Personalized Learning with MyStudentSuccessLab: Whether face-to-face or online, MyStudentSuccessLab helps students build the skills they need through peer-led video interviews, interactive practice exercises, and activities that provide academic, life, and professionalism skills.

·        Personal Success Skills - Internal (or intrapersonal) success skills focus on how to do well “within yourself”. Stress management is followed by positive attitude, time management, goal setting, learning styles, critical/creative thinking, improving memory, and test taking.

·        Professional Success Skills – Skills for succeeding “within your program and beyond.” These skills focus on communication, group interaction, team building, job-seeking, and leadership development.

·        Effective Teaching Techniques – This book includes exercises to facilitate positive behavioral changes. Affective teaching differs from cognitive (theory) teaching, so behavioral changes are presented succinctly to show quick positive results that last.
