Maximizing Online Learning

Individual sessions: Meet one-on-one for 60 minutes with a trained Academic Learning Specialist or peer coach, who will help you construct a concrete plan for succeeding in your online coursework for fall. These sessions are designed to help you with any undergraduate course that includes an online component. You and your coach will choose how to spend your session time, based on your preferences. You might make a calendar to plan your study time, develop test-taking strategies, or brainstorm the most effective approach to homework and writing assignments.
