What are they?
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. We aim for a maximum of twelve students per group; most groups are smaller.
Groups meet weekly, and last for an hour.
Study groups typically start in the third week of the semester. The last day of classes will be the last day of study groups.
What do they achieve?
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.
And an hour spent studying in company is better than an hour of procrastination and distractions.
Which courses? Where? When?
The Spring 2016 study groups are listed below, with times and dates to be added soon. Stay tuned!
Each study group meeting is one (academic) hour long. All groups gather during the evening hours.
How do you join?
You can sign up for study groups through the course Blackboard page (under Organizations).

Interested in leading a group?
Have a look at the CETL jobs page. We look for study group leaders at the end of every term, and especially at the end of Spring.
