This talk is based on a book “Teach students how to learn” by McGuire and McGuire (2015). The book explains how we can teach our students to become better learners, such that they become very comfortable with the material, and this would improve their grades as well. The book summarizes the strategies good learners follow; it also points out why people are not able to develop interest towards the material. In this talk, Arya Gupta will discuss those strategies (both for teachers (to incorporate while teaching) and students (to use as learners)), along with the research findings of the effectiveness of those strategies. Some of the other research findings discussed are outside of the book but can be easily found.
Arya Gupta is a doctoral student with the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Michigan State University. His current research interests include Distributed Systems, Graph Theory, Theoretical Computer Science. He loves teaching Mathematics and Computer Science. With prior service for teaching assignments (as a TA) for three years, he has been serving as a GTA with CSE for more than one year at MSU (4 semesters). Arya is also a GTA Program Advisory Group Member.

About Classroom Microphones
If you find yourself teaching in a classroom, please remember to wear the microphone that comes with that room’s tech cart. If you have students conferencing into your class, this helps ensure they can hear you! If you wish to clean your classroom mic,there are wipes provided at your classroom’s tech cart. Currently there are no plans to send instructors microphones individually.
Instructional Technology Webinars
Every month, the MSU IT Educational Technology holds workshops meant to help instructors use course technology in meaningful ways. February will have a variety of sessions covering tools like D2L, Zoom, and Kaltura Mediaspace. Visit our#iteachmsu Commons article for a list of workshops being held in February and for additional resources.
