Students are rarely taught how to learn. They are taught content such as science and math but rarely how to learn such content. In health occupations, as in all areas, instructors can help students learn by embedding strategy instruction within their courses. To do so, instructors must first understand a few learning principles. With these principles, instructors can design instruction consistent with the ways learners should learn.

Producing learners who can learn is an important part of preparing health occupations students to meet the expectations and demands awaiting them as health occupations providers.
