|Bascom Hall at my alma mater, the University of Wisconsin-Madison.|
It's almost the start of the fall semester, and the work updating my online course pages is just about finished. In my planned weekly communications to students -- guidelines really -- I include a header with the following information to help them do well (or at least better) in their coursework:
Success in the Course = Proactive Engagement + Self-Awareness + Attention to Detail + Collaboration + Timely and Frequent Communication with Your Student Learning Team + Careful Planning + Organization + Problem-solving + Time Management + Consistency + Ownership + On-time Submission of Assignments and Projects.
It strikes me that these sorts of personal habits might also have broader application to success in life off campus and following graduation.
