Study Skills

We can help you become an active learner!

What is active learning?
Active learners do more than just listen: They read, write, discuss and solve problems. Most importantly, active learners engage in higher-order thinking tasks such as analysis, synthesis and evaluation (critical thinking).

The Library Learning Commons provides active learning workshops and individual appointments to support you in working “smarter versus harder” and being more efficient with your study time.
