Make it Stick: Research-Based Learning Strategies You Need to Know

The study and learning strategies students often bring to college are often insufficient to help them succeed at the university level. Particularly in challenging STEM courses, students can't simply memorize or cram their way to a good grade. This workshop will focus on the popular learning strategies to avoid, as well as the top three strategies you don't know but are shown by research to be the most effective for long-term learning.

Workshops are available to support student success at U-M and beyond. Workshop topics include concepts on mindset, learning strategies, medical school, and career & professional endeavors. Explore topics further from the workshop listing on this page.

Workshop materials can be accessed through the self-enroll Science Success Series Canvas course. This is a free, non-credit bearing course that serves as a repository for session materials. Each topic provides learning objectives, handout materials, recorded live events, and reflection prompts that students can participate in at any time and at their own pace.
