What is CPR-L?

CPR-L's purpose is to increase understanding of course concepts and retention of information, develop understanding and application of the problem-solving process, and exorcise bad learning habits.

Observations of STEM students' performance during the LINC program provided the following insights:

1. Lack of retention of core concepts


2. “Pattern-matching” to solve problems


3. Inability to articulate how they solved a problem


4. With faculty guidance, problem solving improved


Exercises incorporated in CPR-L that address the above problems are:

1. Thoroughly understand the problem before trying to solve it (Research)


2. Follow problem-solving processes and protocols (Rubrics)

3. Write something down to aid in conceptualizing the problem (Sketch)

4. Speak aloud where possible – another learning channel (Record)


5. Multiple repetitions (Homework to make it Presentation-Ready)


6. Opportunity to dissect the problem-solving process (Going to the Board)


7. Teaching the concept (Present in class or submit for review and posting in the STEM Digital Village)

CPR-L exercises are incorporated using Laptop Tablet PC Technology, rubrics as a means of guiding students through the problem-solving process and uniformly measuring performance, and teaching and learning techniques that have been heralded in literature as most effective.

CPR-L audio-visual recordings can be shared with other students in class or around the globe through connectivity. Students "teach" from their recording.
