What is Learning Strategies Instruction?

Learning Strategies Instruction provides individualized, student-centered, academic coaching designed to increase student success. The diverse range of undergraduate and graduate students we serve will be motivated to achieve individual goals by becoming self-regulated learners and building academic and personal self-efficacy.

Some Strategies for this Semester:

  • Know what is expected of you in each class.
  • Take notes, keep a planner, and make to-do lists for each class.
  • Establish a routine time to study for each class.
  • Try to spend two hours studying for each hour spent in class.
  • Establish a place to study that is free of distractions.
  • Try to be productive throughout the day.
  • Take advantage of long periods in between classes.
  • Take study breaks: A ten minute break after an hour of studying will keep things fresh.
  • Find at least one or two students in each class to study with.
  • Work on harder subjects at a time when you are fresh.
  • Find a healthy balance between school and other areas of your life.
  • Make use of campus resources, including but not limited to:
    • Professor Office Hours
    • Learning Centers
    • Counseling Center
    • PASS Sessions
    • Career and Academic Planning (CAP)
