Fingers. That's the key. Learning can be fun sometimes, but it is always hard work and it takes root when it passes through the Fingers. So coach students into using their fingers to learn. Every good coach works his/her athletes hard for the good of the athletes. The best coaches say things like "We're in this together, and NOBODY will outwork us!" Well faculty can coach their students to do the hard work of learning in a similar way. "We're in this together and NOBODY is going to outwork us!" Then make those fundamentals pass through their fingers.
