Research Blog #15

Abstract:  Are professors providing a legitimate foundation for success among the student body?  If not, how then do professors go about preparing individuals to successfully retain knowledge?  Are the student’s feelings ill prepared simply ignoring these attempts of teaching?  Can graduating students be the answer to a successful change? The following paper researches the logistics of the professor’s ability to prepare students to successfully retain knowledge at the level of higher education.  A growing concern among students involves learning the necessary tools to succeed in problem solving.  This particular paper will explore the voices of both professional educators and the student body, as they explain their idea of an appropriate learning environment.
