EDUC-X 150

Becoming the best student you can be!

In this course you will learn how to excel in all your college classes by:

  • Getting organized & beating procrastination
  • Applying the science of successful learning to all of your classes
  • Building new study habits and mindsets for overcoming any obstacle
  • Transitioning back to in-person learning

As you transition to a new (or renewed) college experience full of in-person classes, you may be wondering how best to retain information and stay focused in class lectures, study after a year of open-book exams, and meet expectations for class discussion, engagement, and participation.  We are here to help guide you through all of that with some powerful skills and strategies you can start using right away!

Contact Anthony Guest-Scott (aguestsc@indiana.edu) for more information!

I learned exactly what I thought I was going to learn when I chose to do this course, which is to be a better student. I learned my strengths and I learned my weaknesses, which guide me to notice what I need to improve in order to not just be a better student, but a better person as well.
