Students Won't Learn If You Don't Show Them How

When students walk into class, or enter an online classroom, they are there because it is a mandatory degree requirement or they have a specific need that requires them to acquire specialized knowledge and/or skills for their career.

They may not become fully involved in their class until they perceive it will be of value and they can complete what is required of them, which means learning may be viewed as a conditional process rather than something they can always benefit from and be involved in.
