Coming Soon to the Learning Center:

An Engaging Academic Support Program!

Introducing...

Stepping Up

This practical, user-friendly program aims to help students successfully transition to college. Offering hands-on practice in key academic areas, Stepping Up prepares students for the demands of their college courses. 

Introductory activities are available now to all approved instructors!  

 

Time Management

Stepping Up offers two sample syllabi followed by questions and activities that help students learn how to prioritize, schedule, and manage tasks weeks or months in advance. These activities help them identify and utilize time management strategies before their classes begin. 

Sample Activities Are Available in the Learning Center. See them here! 


Note-Taking

Stepping Up will feature a video lecture and give students hands-on practice taking and evaluating notes—a scenario they are likely to experience many times in college. Accompanying activities will teach them to recognize cues that speakers use to indicate important information and related concepts. The goal: making students ready for the college classroom from day one. 

Coming later this spring!


Active Reading

Drawing from a vast pool of cross-disciplinary textbook passages, Stepping Up will teach active reading strategies for learners via direct practice with actual college texts. Practice in identifying main ideas, supporting details, key transitions, and more will be provided.  

Coming later this spring! 


Test-Taking and Study Skills

Tests are an essential part of college. Stepping Up will help students prepare for this reality by teaching them about a range of topics, including test anxiety, item-specific strategies, and ways to gauge test readiness. Activities that teach students about memory, cognition, and recall will also be featured. 

Coming later this spring!
