How To Get The Most Out Of Studying: A Video Series


Dr. Steven Chew of Samford University

Please take a look at videos offered here.  They are short and informative. They may help you develop effective college-level study skills and find out what to do if you find you blew the exam.
“These videos represent both the latest in cognitive research on how people learn and my many years of experience teaching undergraduates. My approach is different from the popular collections of tips, gimmicks and folk wisdom one sees in most books and videos on studying. I present basic principles of how people learn and I try to correct counterproductive misconceptions so that students can improve their learning by devising their own effective study strategies. These videos should help students identify effective and ineffective study strategies so they understand that, although there is no magic bullet, they can learn to get maximal learning out of their study time. Although the videos are aimed at students, I believe they are a valuable resource for teachers as well. My hope is that teachers will use them to work with students to improve their learning.” Dr. Steven Chew
