Students can apply these principles right away. This does not have to be successful right away. If students simply breakdown study sessions into 1 hour sections with breaks every 15 minutes, they could experience less burnout. Furthermore, homeworks don’t have to be perfect the first time around. Mistakes are learning strategies, too.
Most students (and teachers) can identify with this even before reading it’s definition. We can draw similar scenarios whenever we absolutely needed to learn anything in very short order. We can literally assign keywords, mnemonic devices, or catch phrases to learn just about anything.
Focusing on students learning rather than teaching the material is fundamental in college. Students need to migrate from a mandatory education to a voluntary one. We can put them on the path to success, but they need to walk it.
Learning is a lifelong process that serves the student well beyond their degree and through their profession.
