Announcements Extra Credit Opportunity: New
As I mentioned in an email to the whole class over the Thanksgiving Break, Arianna Montefusco is conducting a study with Dr. Ward and needs participants. If you participate, you can earn extra credit according to the guidelines in the syllabus (that is, up to 2 experiences for 5 pts each). Unfortunately this study requires participants to be between 18 and 22 years of age. If you have any questions, please contact Arianna or Dr. Ward; their email addresses are at the bottom of the flyer. Here is the flyer:\

Approaches to Class & Study   Some Notes 

Video Guide: How to Study Long and Hard and Still Fail…or How to Get the Most Out of Studying

These are short individual videos (4-7 min.) made by Prof. Stephen Chew, a psychology professor at Samford University and an expert on student learning strategies. I suspect that they will be helpful for almost any college student whether in psychology or any other class.
  • Video 1: Beliefs That Make You Fail…Or Succeed. The first video examines common mistaken beliefs students often possess that undermine their learning. The video tries to correct those misconceptions with accurate beliefs about learning.

  • Video 2: What Students Should Understand About How People Learn. The second video introduces a simple but powerful theory of memory, Levels of Processing, that can help students improve their study.

  • Video 3: Cognitive Principles for Optimizing Learning. The third video operationalizes the concept of level of processing into four principles that students can use to develop effective study strategies.

  • Video 4: Putting the Principles for Optimizing Learning into Practice. The fourth video applies the principles of deep processing to common study situations, including note taking and highlighting while reading.

  • Video 5: I Blew the Exam, Now What? This video addresses what students should and should not do when they earn a bad grade on an exam.
