Study Less….Learn More: Understanding the New Science of Learning

Study Less Learn More image

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.

This workshop is part of the Build Your Skills Workshop Series, which features practical, hands-on instruction in useful skills you may not learn in class. Other workshops in this Fall 2017 series are Programming with Python, Collaborating Using Github, Learn Linux Shell, Working with Secure Technologies, Using Google Forms, Google Drive: File Management & Beyond, Crossing the Finish Line: Uploading Your Electronic Thesis or Dissertation (ETD), Study Less….Learn More: Understanding the New Science of Learning, and Intro to 3D Modeling with Tinkercad. All sessions will be first-come, first served.
