If you find yourself wondering why your students' exam results are often worse than their homework and class activity results, this 30-minute informative webinar is for you. We will discuss strategies and tools to incorporate the use of purposeful knowledge network development throughout our teaching in order to help students transfer what they learn from lecture and practice to other contexts, including in exams and later in life. Registrants will receive a webinar link a few days before the event.

The framework will emphasize three research-based elements: mastery, metacognition, and motivation. Join us to reflect on the framework and to strategize and set priorities to improve student outcomes.
