This just in from Dr. Bethany Miller’s Retention Update:
Transformative Learning is offering again their variable credit, part-of term course to promote student success: UK 100: Foundations of Academic Success. This course is designed to assist students in developing and utilizing study skills and learning strategies needed to succeed as a college student. The main objective of this course is to provide an opportunity for students to focus on a multitude of study skills that will assist in their overall success throughout their college careers and life long learning. Students will work on enhancing their learning strategies (e.g., time management, note taking, critical reading strategies, test taking, financial literacy, motivation).
Key target groups for this course:
- First-time students who did not take UK 101 or UK 201
- Students in academic difficulty
- Students demonstrating a need to increase their knowledge/learning skills due to academic/personal challenges
This course was requested by various academic departments and campus student services, and it can help colleges and departments that want to offer support to those on probation or returning from suspension.
The next session offered is March 21 – May 6, 2016. This is a good course to recommend to students and to share with advisors who help with academic planning.
