DML offers a three phase approach to learning which include the 3 D’s, diffusing, deepening, and discovering (Zigmont, Kappus, Sudikoff, 2011). Each phase will be explored and expanded upon giving insight into the reflective learning process which allows students to connect the dots between theory and practice. DML technique is a student led learning experience with the faculty serving in a facilitator role. Debriefing allows dissemination of active learning to every member of the group as participants are more able to fully think through and discuss what has transpired, gain a more in-depth understanding and appreciation of knowledge, and retain knowledge and skills for future application.
A variety of DML techniques will be explored with the aim of showcasing how DML can be employed in various student and faculty interactions including to explore experiences post completion of group work, formative and summative evaluation of student research groups, and student led organization as well as throughout advisement interactions. This project will explore how DML helps students connect the dots from theory to practice using the 3 D’s and find creative ways to incorporate DML into academic encounters resulting in improved outcomes and enhanced student success.
