Meaningful Learning

Memory Retention and the Forgetting Curve
Brought to you by: Online Colleges
I have long had a rule that my students must "touch" our learning at least five times before their final exam.  To add to this I strive, as much as possible, to have my students learn through interacting with the materials (ie I facilitate and they do and therefore learn better).  Finally, as stated above, good learning involves connecting as much as possible to the learner.  When we do my reviews of the year, one thing that students repeatedly state they find helpful is when I connect the learning to their own lives.  All of these thoughts are reflected above.
