Today’s Emerging Adults (a term coined by author Jeffrey Arnett, 2015) are growing up more slowly, and often lack the self-discipline and skills needed for college. The methods they used to get by in high school are no longer successful in the college classroom. So, how can we be proactive in our approach to helping students become successful in our classes?
Here are some resources we can use to be proactive in our approach to helping students become successful in our classes. The key to helping students is to purposefully integrate or build these resources into your course instruction. For more help on how to do this, feel free to contact the Center for Teaching and Learning.
