Learning Teams Why do we need learning teams? Often, students in large classes struggle with remaining engaged during what can feel like long, boring, and tedious lectures. Over time even the most motivated of students can lose interest in the material when they do not feel engaged in the class during lecture. As a result they can become less motivated and may begin to miss classes and stop reading the book. Missed material then results in even lower motivation, and this downward spiral can result in a poor grade in the class and an overall negative experience. Another phenomenon that often occurs in large classes is that if students begin to fall behind or do not understand a concept, they are hesitant to speak up in class simply due to the fact that there are so many other people present. As a result they either cannot move past this point when the material is cumulative, they have holes in their knowledge of the material, or they fixate on the material that was not understood and fail to pay attention to the other parts of class.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
