Spending long hours studying but not seeing the results you hoped for? Not to worry.
The LinkedIn Learning Club @ McMaster is sharing strategies to help you study smarter, not harder, this academic year.
During November, McMaster University students using their free LinkedIn Learning accounts will have access to a collection of short courses and videos that offer helpful tips for developing effective study habits.
The campaign, entitled Essential Studying Tips for McMaster Students, was curated by Tanvir Singh, a third-year computer science student and LinkedIn Learning ambassador.
“This collection was created to support students of all levels through midterms and the upcoming final exam period,” said Singh. “It’s an especially great resource for first-year students who might be struggling to meet the demands of post-secondary learning.”
Those who access the collection will find strategies for developing a study mindset, learning faster, creating an effective study plan, and more.
Jeannie An, LinkedIn Learning campus coordinator and Ron Joyce Centre research services librarian, says the campaign offers an opportunity for students to develop healthier study habits, as well.
“A truly effective study habit is also one that is healthy,” said An. “Regardless of whether or not a student is meeting their academic goals, I encourage them to reflect on their current learning strategies to identify areas for improvement. This collection is a good place to start.”
