Description

Even though we can be in school for 15-20 years we are never taught what are the most effective study techniques that we should be using. In this course we take an evidence-based look at the latest scientific literature on study techniques to find out what techniques we should be using. Using effective study techniques allows students to boost their grades and frees up time to do more interesting things. Most student's rely on intuitive techniques like highlighting and rereading, but these have shown to not be very effective and lead to poor exam results. If you want to find out the most effective learning techniques, take this course.

Who this course is for:
  • Students trying to improve their exam results
  • Students looking for science backed study techniques
