SIRV the Students

A Student Success Week 2014 Session

Today’s hyper-connected students are quite comfortable with multiple sources of digitally-based information that can saturate them with nearly instant information. The difficulty arises when this glut of information needs to be distilled into subject-matter skills that increases cognitive understanding and decreases mere reliance on data retrieval.

Join Dennis Kessinger for a discussion of a successful technique to apply to the learning process known as SIRV -- Saturation, Incubation, Recognition, Validation -- that leverages the wealth of online information into building cognitive and discernment skills.
