Saundra McGuire: Strategies to Teach Students How to Learn
On what changed the trajectory of her research and scholarship.
Before I got to LSU, I really didn’t understand that there were strategies for students to use to increase the quality of their learning. I knew how to teach chemistry. I’d won teaching awards, and I was a very successful faculty member. But I didn’t know that you could give students very simple information and strategies that would empower them to take control of their own learning.
