Instructional Strategies

By: Alma Mejorado

imageResearch has demonstrated that engaging students in the learning process increases their attention and focus, motivates them to practice higher-level critical thinking skills, and promotes meaningful learning experiences. Instructors who adopt a student-centered approach to instruction increase opportunities for student engagement, which then helps everyone more successfully achieve the course’s learning objectives.

There are a variety of teaching strategies that instructors can use to improve student learning. Effective teachers directly impact student learning and achievement. It’s been shown that teachers who have a large repertoire of effective instructional strategies teach differently. They’re more intentional in their objectives, strategies, and intended outcomes. And, have better results.
