    Explore evidence-based learning strategies that enable students to learn better and remember longer. Transformative power of story will be utilized to help us understand why these principles should replace less effective but widely accepted practices.

    10 names will be drawn to receive a free copy of the book Make It Stick for second time attendees at Linda’s second SIG held Wednesday noon October 3. The intent is for those 10 participants to have a willingness to attend all 5 of Linda’s sessions, if possible. (All of Linda's sessions are held Wednesdays at noon.)
