Encourage students to work together. Students do not learn much just sitting in classes listening to instructors, memorizing assignments, and spitting out answers. They must talk about what they are learning, write about it, relate it to past experiences, and apply it to their daily lives.
They must make what they learn part of themselves. Ask students to present their work to the class. Give students concrete, real life situations to analyze.
Ask students to summarize similarities and differences among research findings, artistic works or laboratory results. Model asking questions, listening behaviors, and feedback. Encourage use of professional journals. Use technology to encourage active learning. Encourage use of internships, study abroad, service learning and clinical opportunities.
