Improve Your Students’ Practice and Performance Session 3 Practice Challenges and Solutions

Increase Student Success with Research-Based Practical Tips

Improve Your Students’ Practice and Technic-Building is a 6-session series of short, information-packed presentations focused on building essential skills for robust learning, productive practice, and confident performance.

Each session will highlight research-based practice strategies. But we won’t stop there.
