HOW TO STUDY & LEARN: metacognition, note taking, active reading, the study cycle
with Brian DuMontier
Mon & Wed February 12 - 14, 2024
Are your study techniques a lot of hard work that don’t seem to help your grades? Maybe it's because those study habits you developed back in high school aren't enough to sustain your efforts in college.
But don’t worry—we’ll examine how to analyze your current strategies, see what’s working and what isn’t, and come up with new, more effective study techniques. To do this, we’ll introduce you to the idea of “metacognition," "active" notetaking & reading methods, and a model called the Study Cycle to ramp up your ability to learn and retain what you've learned.
The goal is to alleviate some of your academic stress, increase your enjoyment of learning, and hopefully bolster your overall GPA.
This course will also be synchronous via Zoom meeting.
