Topic Overview

The seven principles provide a framework for quality teaching and learning.


Encourages Active Learning

Learning is not a spectator sport. To internalize learning students must talk about what they are learning, write reflectively about it, relate it to past experiences, and apply it to their daily lives.

Give Prompt Feedback

Knowing what they know and do not know helps the student focus learning. Respond to student queries and problems quickly, utilize rubrics, utilize low-stakes assessments, provide frequently updated grades, and respond to students within 24 hours if possible.
