"Make it Stick" has been described as "the single best work I have encountered on the subject [of how students learn]. Anyone with an interest in teaching or learning will benefit from reading this book, which not only presents thoroughly grounded research but does so in an eminently readable way that is accessible even to students" (Chronicle of Higher Education, April 2014). Come join us for a lively discussion about how to create learning environments that make the information "stick" for students. The first 12 faculty members who sign up will receive a complimentary copy of the book.
