Session 1: Begin with the Basics
Welcome to the Learning Curve! In our first meeting, THINK TANK Learning Specialists will introduce students to the first two levels of learning—remembering and understanding-- the foundational components upon which all future knowledge is built. Through engaging activities and information, students will discover how the brain learns and what helps us to truly remember and understand material.
Session 2: Put Together The Pieces
In this interactive session, students will have the opportunity to practice active study strategies and techniques. Professional Learning Specialists will guide students in applying these different learning methods and in analyzing the effectiveness of each approach.
Session 3: Explore Change
In session three, students will identify how their strengths support the learning process and will evaluate how self-reflection informs their approach as a student. The session will conclude with students learning to create study plans that are beneficial for any college course.
