Study groups offer an opportunity to study collaboratively with classmates, guided by a student leader who did well in the same course within the past year or two. There is a maximum of twelve students per group, but most groups are smaller.
Groups meet for an hour weekly and typically start in the third week of the semester. The last day of classes will be the last day of study groups.
Study Group Benefits
Most people learn better when they study in groups, regardless of how well they're doing already. If you're having difficulty, you can get help from others. If you're handling the material well, you can deepen your understanding by working with others.
Plus, an hour spent studying in company is better than an hour of procrastination and distractions.
The complete fall 2016 study group schedule will be posted below during the first weeks of the new semester. Each study group meeting is an hour long. All groups gather during the evening hours.
Joining a Group
You can sign up for study groups through the course Blackboard page (under Organizations).
