Sooooo helpful for many students.


Next year I will be teaching *IDP 136 Applied Learning Strategies* in the
fall as well as in the spring.


Please recommend this course to any student who could benefit from
strengthening academic skills and increasing confidence as a learner.  The
feedback from students who took the course this semester has been
overwhelmingly positive.


I appreciate your help in spreading the word!


Thank you,


Gail Thomas, Learning Specialist

Jacobson Center for Writing, Teaching and Learning




*IDP 136 Applied Learning Strategies *


This six-week course teaches students to extend and refine their academic
capacities to become autonomous learners. Course content includes research
on motivation, learning styles, perfectionism, memory and retrieval, as
well as application of goal setting, time management and study skills.
Students who take this course will be better prepared to handle coursework,
set realistic goals, maintain focus and motivation, and move forward with
confidence. Priority will be given to students referred by their dean or
adviser. Since it is a six-week course, no one will be admitted after the
first week. Enrollment limited to 15. Grading S/U. (E) Credits: 1
