BYU-Idaho Learning Model

The Learning Model is designed to help students become more involved in their learning through preparation, teaching others, and applying what they have learned.

3 Key Steps of the Learning Model

Students are invited to come to each class prepared to learn by studying assigned readings, completing required homework, and participating in online discussions and pre-class study groups. Through instructor-led activities in class, you will teach other students what you've learned—honing and refining your own understanding in the process. Later, you'll internalize your learning through review, reflection, and application.
