Reach out to students in your classes (via chat in Zoom, Moodle discussion board, Teams, Navigate Student) to see if there are classmates who’d like to schedule a study group. You can meet every week to review lecture notes, in-class activities, and the content you’re currently learning. Some tips for convening an effective study group:
- Connect with students who have similar motivations and goals as you
- Come prepared: it may help to assign different sections of materials that each person is responsible for reviewing beforehand and assisting others with understanding
- Appoint a group leader to keep everyone focussed. This role can change from meeting to meeting.
- Build in break times to socialize and chat. This can make it easier to stay on task the rest of the time.
