Tip of the Month:
Use word generators like Word Finder, Unscramble Words: Make Words with These Letters, or Letter Solverto create mnemonics. If you’re a student who is trying to remember the different parts of anatomy (i.e. arm, leg, head, foot, abdomen, hand), you can plug in the first letter of each term and it will create a word from them or at least the closest thing that sounds like a word (HALFA).

What is Learner Variability?
On an individual scale, we start from the cognitive and social science premise that a multitude of factors influence learning. On a larger scale, learner variability refers to the ways in which the diversity of approaches to learning can create major hurdles and deliver tremendous benefits.
At the Learning Lab, we work with all Stanford students. When discussing individual learner variability, we use each student’s preferred terms, embracing the stance that Elizabeth Ross takes.
