I teach a similar class and it is similar to what you describe. The class meets once a week for 75 minutes. I administer the the "Final Quiz" on the last day of class so that students may concentrate on their other classes during finals week. It is like a series
of workshops and students submit a weekly journal that is intended to help them improve their metacognition.
A couple of years ago I submitted a proposal for a 300 level Academic Success class so that juniors and seniors could earn upper division credit hours. Both classes meet at the same time and in the same room. I usually have about 3-5 upper-division students
in the UNIV 310 class. They also have to produce a video on a Study Strategy of their choice. I have included a copy of both syllabi to this email.
I hope this helps!

Subject: One Credit Hour Skills Class
I currently teach a three-credit hour study skills class that is mandatory for students who are placed on academic probation. I am proposing that it be changed to a one-credit hour class that is run more like a series of workshops on different learning
strategies and time-management skills. Since our school is currently on a quarter system, I would have eight class meetings with the students.
Does anyone teach something similar? I need comparable examples for my proposal. Also, I would appreciate seeing a syllabus for a one-credit hour study skills type class.
