Welcome to this Webinar series based on Students' Pathway to Success: A Faculty Guide, collaboratively written by the Top 40 Academy, a faculty professional learning community at UNC Charlotte. The book helps prepare faculty who teach students new to the university how create a positive academic experience for both first-time students and students who transfer in. Join the authors to hear detailed synopses about their topics and have the opportunity to ask them questions.
This session will focus on the Learning How to Learn: Basic Skills, Making Connections, and Self-Direction chapter. There are different kinds of goals we associate with learning how to learn: learning basic academic skills, learning to inquire and construct knowledge, and learning how to be a self-directed learner. In this chapter, we describe each of these distinct goals and offer a number of suggestions for accomplishing each of them.
Jamie Strickland, Senior Lecturer and Geography Undergraduate Coordinator in the Department of Geography & Earth Sciences, and Bill Garcia, Senior Lecturer and Earth Sciences Undergraduate Coordinator, also in the Department of Geography & Earth Sciences.
