The Toolbox is a professional development electronic newsletter that offers innovative, learner-centered
strategies for improving teaching and learning for college students. It is published
bimonthly, and subscriptions are free.
Three evidence-based principles of educational psychology can facilitate effective
course design practices that increase learning. These evidence-based principles are
often underutilized because they are not generally viewed as student success strategies.
However, they are especially effective practices for instructors who engage with transitioning
students in higher education. In this issue of The Toolbox, we will examine these course design practices and demonstrate how they have been
successfully used with college students in general education courses.
The Toolbox Collection is a five-volume series that gives vital topics from previous
issues of The Toolbox an added focus, while providing context for 2019 and beyond.
The Toolbox Collection, Vol. 4: Digital Learning With the global COVID-19 pandemic forcing educators to transition to online instruction, this
compendium of past issues focuses on connecting and communicating with students, assignments
and assessment, and resources for the online classroom.
