Lessons with Staying Power
Students need strong opportunities to develop both real-world skills and soft skills to remember what they have learned. All new BYU Independent Study courses are now designed with a trifecta of mastery opportunities:
- Knowledge — subject mastery with integrated learning methods
- 21st Century Skills — gain skills in the areas of collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking
- Character Attributes — to become more emotionally resilient and successful
We call these innovations “Knowledge, Skills, and Attributes” or “KSA” for short.
