Abstract : What is it that instructors do when they help students? How is it that some instructors seem to have a special ability to help a student overcome a personal or academic problem that is a deterrent to that student's ability to learn in the classroom? At the Educational Research and Development Center (ERDC) we have found that the following knowledge and skill areas are important parts of this process: Organization; Instructor styles and preferences; Student individual differences; Listening; Problem solving; Helping; Giving and receiving feedback; and Personal model of instruction.
