Principle 4: Provide Prompt Feedback. Knowing what you do know and what you do not focuses your learning. Students need help assessing their existing knowledge and skills. They need frequent opportunities to perform and receive feedback. They need to reflect on what they know and what they still need to learn. Being prompt is key so the student can improve by the next assignment.
Principle 7: Respect Diversity and Individual Talents, Experience, and Learning Styles. Different students bring different talents and styles to college. Successful students in lab/studio may struggle with theory and students who struggle with hands-on may be brilliant with theory. They need the opportunities to show their talents and learn ways that work for them individually.
