How Learning Works prize winner!

Thanks to all who entered the draw to win a copy of Susan A. Ambrose et al.'s How Learning Works.  The winner, as selected by a random number generator, is Terry, who commented:

I think having students reflect on how they learn best will help them know themselves better and empower them to seek out information in a format that will help them to "put the pieces together" so that they can place the information in a context that will allow them to recall the information learned in a situation where it is required. In this way they will "learn" the information, rather than just memorizing facts, which is not learning.
Congratulations, Terry!  Please contact me to claim your prize.

Stay tuned for another exciting book giveaway coming up soon!
