Schedule an appointment with a Learning Specialist to learn more about how to improve the results of your study efforts. Learn techniques to manage your time and the demands of your classes, ways to get more from your reading, techniques for effective review, and methods of study for specific subjects such as physics, chemistry, philosophy, math, statistics, etc.
LAP can help you discover personalized answers to the questions above and more. Additionally, we can utilize various tools to help you assess perceived strengths and areas for improvement in your overall study habits. Focusing on using learning strengths results in smart approaches.
In order to make the most out of your scheduled individual session, some things to think about before your meeting could include:
Brainstorming new study methods for me to try based on what I already know about myself, testing those different methods out, and deciding which really helped.SeattleU Student
The most useful aspect of the ICA was feeling like I had someone who understood and was supportive of me during a time when I lacked that on campus.SeattleU Student
To gain a better understanding of yourself as a learner, it would be helpful to evaluate the way you learn best by completing the most appropriate inventory tool to meet your needs. After completing an inventory, we would encourage you to discuss the results with a Learning Specialist who can help you to use this information to develop an approach that enhances your learning potential.
The following inventories are available in the Learning Assistance Programs office:
There are also several inventories available on our website. Please look under "Resources" in the menu for online learning style inventories. You can complete them and then bring them to an appointment with a Learning Specialist. The Specialist will help you adapt your learning strategies to your strengths.
