Educational interventions are manipulations implemented to change students’ thoughts, emotions, or behaviors. Brief, easily implemented interventions have been shown to have long-lasting positive effects if they cause students to change recursive psychological processes. Successful interventions require deep understanding of both theories of psychological processes and specific contexts. One size cannot fit all, and seemingly minor variations in an intervention can result in unexpected effects. Collaboration with faculty and others who support student learning can benefit all parties involved.
