Description

Studying is a process that every student at Colby must do. However, many students are unaware of the most beneficial study techniques. When a student is struggling in a course, it is important for faculty to be able to provide advice on effective techniques and to know how students typically study. In an effort to learn which techniques students use and what faculty perceptions are, we distributed an online survey to both students and faculty. Faculty members were asked about the ways in which they suggest their students study for their classes. This presentation will compare current practices with ideal practices. An additional goal of this presentation is to educate both students and faculty about the studying techniques which are most effective.
