Tomorrow first lecture, new students @PPW_KULeuven. My first slides are ready. (A couple of new ones this year!)
Providing PowerPoint Slides prior to class has an adverse impact on performance of students.
Students who take notes on laptops perform worse than students who take notes longhand. "The Pen Is Mightier Than the Keyboard."
Students who multitask on laptop during class perform worse.
But. Also. Students in direct view of a multitasking peer perform worse.

@GrahamCLDavey: "Students with a consumer mindset do less well! Remember students, you're buying an "opportunity" to learn, not buying a degree!"

A higher consumer orientation in students is associated with lower performance.

Attending class has strong relationship with class grades. Mandatory attendance policies appear to have a small positive impact on average grades, so not mere correlational.

Students sitting on rows near the front during class perform better in examinations. Again, not just correlational evidence: "When students are randomly assigned seating location those seated towards the front achieve higher grades."
