Structuring class activities and assignments that best help students learn is a difficult art to master, so GSIs do well to become informed about the practices that are most effective for student learning and what makes them effective.

On the GSI Center website, you will find links to a variety of resources that explain research on learning, which GSIs can reflect on and apply to their teaching.

Visit the How Students Learn section of the GSI Center website for more information.
