This week’s teaching strategy:

Empty Outlines: An empty outline provides the learner with a handout or screen document in which the organization of knowledge for a particular concept, skill, chapter, or course has been pre-determined by the instructor. Some of the information in the outline is deliberately omitted so that the learner can complete the outline using notes, text or other references, and memory, thus reinforcing what has been learned and the structure in which the instructor wants the learner to retain.
