Micro-Strategies: Small Steps toward Improved Retention
Beaulieu, Elizabeth Ann; Williams, Lee Burdette
Learning Communities: Research & Practice, v1 n1 Article 12 2013

Equally important, a shared focus on the use of micro-strategies in learning communities creates a generative framework for discussing teaching and learning among faculty and staff. A representative list of micro-strategies is provided along with likely results. [This article was originally published in: "Journal of Learning Communities Research," 1(1) 2006.]
