Study Groups

Author: Anabel Perez | Emily Versace Subject: All Subjects Created: 2022-01-26
From The Author Study groups are a great way for students to get to know each other, build community, and learn course material. As an instructor what I appreciate about study groups are the ‘aha’ moments students experience when they realize how effective study groups can be. In addition, students have shared how study groups turn into support systems and friendships. Helping students get started with forming study groups is important because many students do now know how to begin or might be too shy to ask classmates. Study groups also provide an opportunity for faculty to engage students with course content and increase student success. – Anabel Perez - Anabel Perez
