How do you expect students to learn? What is your understanding of learning?

By himself.

As a teacher, you have to provide guidance and knowledge but learning is something that can only happen by investing personal time and energy. Even in a group setup, the learning is happening for each individual differently. You get some information during class or watching video but if you want to learn, you have to rehearse and practice on your own. Learning is not magic and does not happen only by exposure.
