LEARNING THROUGH PRACTICE
"The instructor used problems that were applicable to the real world. This enhanced my learning because it showed that the material we were learning is/will be valuable throughout and after college."
"Having group team work helped my understanding and made me feel like I had people to study with or ask questions if I had a hard time understanding a topic. "
"...it was okay when I didn't understand something so I felt comfortable asking questions"
"Having team sessions in class and online were valuable to my learning experience because I could collaborate with my peers about complex problems"
