The following concepts were discussed during this session:
• Students learn key concepts better when they have opportunities to actively monitor their understanding.
• Knowledge is socially constructed and people learn best in supportive social settings when working with peers.
• Students become better learners when we challenge them to answer questions that require the use of higher order thinking skills.
