Hi Carol,

One thing that I do for my learning skills workshops is to advertise
college level skills for learning and emphasize that high school
level study skills are not enough to do well in college. So many of my
students earned good gpa's in high school by looking over testable
material once or twice the night before a test and they would get A's
and B's. You know how well that high school level study skill works in
college! Advertising workshops on college level skills for learning
seems to get more students to attend. Feel free to look at our web site
and download any handouts you feel will benefit your students:
http://www.sarc.sdes.ucf.edu/studyhandouts.html. Let me know if you have
any questions. 

The study skill that seems to earn the highest grades in the least
amount of time here is self-testing. It helps students avoid going into
a test thinking, feeling, asuming, hoping, or believing they know the
material and not finding out for sure until they get the test grade back
when they can't do anything about that grade then. This is a good way to
feel helpless for freshmen, especially.


Best wishes..................................

Dennis

I have been working with our study skills workshop series for several
years
now and although we have been able to increase attendance and
participation
and gather positive feedback from student participants, I question
whether
the workshop is an effective tool for promoting good study skills.

Can anyone direct me to any research that may provide support (or lack
of
support) for the impact of the workshop on improving study skills or
any
other positive effects on student performance?

Thank you,
