Group Learning Environments 2 Introduction: As educators, it is important that a positive learning environment is created for our students to be successful in their academics. How we create that environment is just as important as how we enforce it. To have a positive learning environment, it is imperative that educators are continuously looking for new ways to engage and motivate our students (St. Onge & Eitel, 2017).

    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.
