Palliser’s DiscoverU Student Leadership Conference: Students found themselves, more often than not, free to explore the realm of self-directed learning. While the idea of students learning without formal direction may startle some, Alison’s approach works wonders for students looking to motivate themselves and get more out of each opportunity to learn.
