About the Book
Hands-on teaching and evidence-based learning is a diverse, dynamic, and in-depth educational tool that aligns with students professional aspirations and focuses on the holistic development of the individual student.
It simply makes learning the student’s own experience by practically demonstrating what he or she knows. Without Hands-on, a student’s growth as an individual is limited.
The book gives students a chance to get more done, extend their reach, lighten their load, and broaden their skills and capabilities.
In the 13-chapters, you will find a complete guide to the process of hands-on teaching and evidence-based learning.
