Workshop

Where did you learn how to learn and how to study? It is an odd question, as you have been doing it for a very long time, and since you’re in college, you’re clearly pretty good at it. That said, what if the strategies you use to study are not the most effective ways to learn? This session is not about spending more time studying, but rather how to study and learn better. The overall goal of this session is for you to better understand how your brain works when processing information and specific strategies you can employ to become a more effective learner. This session is for both faculty and students.
