How It Works
This program is designed for those who have the desire to succeed but are not fully utilizing the tools they have to ensure success. The program begins with learning style, study skills, and reading assessments. You will work independently and collaboratively on exercises and maintain a portfolio of all classroom work.
In the workshop students are introduced to strategies for the efficient management of information and for the successful study of class material. Skills are developed through the application of strategies to sample class materials, such as lecture notes and reading assignments. Minimal out-of-class work is assigned.
