Independent and Interdependent Remedial/Developmental Student Learners
DeBraak, LaRonna
NADE Digest, v4 n1 p11-18 Fall 2008
As scholars continue to debate over the specific skills underprepared students need in order to complete their course of study, perhaps the focus should be on how to tap into students' independent thought processes and encourage students to utilize independent thought to contribute to interdependent groups. Placing value on students' independent (self-directed or autonomous) contributions and encouraging interdependent (group) activities greatly enhances students' ability to obtain their educational goals. The six-step process guides faculty through the process of creating and implementing a strong independent and interdependent learning experience.
