Reading

Students are often faced with challenges when it comes to the kind of reading necessary for their college programs. The two main obstacles for students are the sheer volume of reading assigned to them and the type of reading texts required of them. The Reading tutorial provides strategies to move through reading material in efficient ways, as well as understand and retain the new, often complex, material students encounter.

Online Learning Strategies

With the current situation, our college programs have shifted almost entirely online. Although many of the study strategies you've used for in-class learning work for online learning, there are a number of key differences. Taking these differences into account and making necessary adjustments will be crucial to being successful in the online learning environment.

Tip of the Day

How can I get the most out of my textbook?

Under different circumstances, your approach to reading text varies depending on the voice in which the material’s narrative is written. You may have a preferred approach that has worked well for you in the past. However, as more cases become confirmed, you may feel the stress of the news weigh more heavily on your mind.

You may be finding it increasingly difficult to concentrate on assigned readings, because of the direction your mind is wandering in. You may find it is taking longer to figure out which lecture notes you need to write down to study from.
