Study Sessions

Study Sessions:

  1. Hold your study sessions at the same time and place each week.

  2. Consider offering snacks at your sessions (can be arranged through your RC or through Jessica)

  3. Weigh whether or not the Fishbowl is your best option; it’s convenient for students but there is a lot of potential distractions and noise.  The Business Building is close and quiet…

  4. It’s better to facilitate study sessions (helping students work and keep on track) than it is to simply answer questions.  Make your goal to redirect questions back to the group as frequently as possible, so they are teaching each other the material (and thus learning it better).  This also takes the pressure off of you; you don’t have to be an expert in Animal Science to have a study session about Animal Science. 

  5. If there is a question neither you nor your student can answer, take it to the instructor.  If there is a particularly difficult unit students are struggling with, invite the instructor (or TA) to your hall to lead a special study session.

  6. Consider doing a “specialty” workshop/study session.  You can get materials or ideas for sessions from Jessica:
    • How to study effectively
    • How to read difficult text
    • Time management
    • Note-taking
    • Others?

  7. Set ground rules for your sessions.  Some possible rules:
    • Phones off/in a basket
    • Students have to ask each other a question before they can ask you
    • Others?
