Five tips for studying at home

1. Get Organized

Organize your workspace so everything is close at hand before you start. Gather your assignment, text books, research material, computer or tablet, pen and paper -- and your coffee, tea, or soda (in a container with a re-sealing lid, of course). Many people like to choose a spot that is quiet, comfortable, and well-lit. Also minimize distractions: turn off the news or social media, but try quiet music on headphones while you work.

2. Make Notes

Taking notes effectively is key to success in class. Use “jot notes” in point form to organize your thoughts. That means using bullet points with content words (nouns, verbs important adjectives/adverbs) and abbreviations. Use synonyms,  reorganize the material in a way that’s easy to understand, and write or say it in your own words.

3. Stay Focused

Try to engage with the material. Don’t just read and memorize. Focus on the important information. Ask yourself questions: How does this information fit what you already know about this topic? Try to summarize or paraphrase it in your own words. Some people like to make flashcards to help them remember important facts and definitions.

4. Take care of yourself

Studies prove that we learn more if we give our brains a break every hour or so. Try to stretch or move to prevent fatigue and cramping. Get a good night’s sleep, drink plenty of water, and eat nutritious meals. Set milestones or small, reachable goals that you can accomplish in a reasonable amount of time, and then notice when you meet them. Have a snack, watch a movie, or even play a video game. Find the right kind of positive reinforcement to help you stay on track.

5. Communicate

Stay in touch with your instructor and classmates. Some courses offer online sections like Brightspace, and instructors often post helpful tip-sheets there. Instructors are often available by email and will be willing to answer questions about assignments and course work. Try using social media to keep in touch with classmates.

Don’t forget: Learning Services is there to help by Zoom and Online:
