UAAP Relaunches Learning Strategies Website

By Stephen Pepper, Staff Associate, Academic Performance, UAAP

Teaching and learning at MIT are intensive and demanding. Most students discover that they need to refine and upgrade their study skills, both during the first year and later when encountering advanced material. DUE’s Office of Undergraduate Advising and Academic Programming (UAAP) recently unveiled Learning to Learn, a complete redesign and reoganization of its online Learning Strategies resources.

The relaunched website offers 24/7 access to Quick Tips and more detailed advice on How to Study Smarter, Not Harder, including learning styles, time management, logistics, preparing for exams, coping with stress, and academic integrity. It features Student-to-Student Advice and detailed lists of Resources for academic and personal support, including tutoring.

UAAP gathered input from students, advisors, and staff over a two-year period and commissioned a fresh new look for the site from Ink Design of Boston. UAAP also offers workshops during the academic year on general study skills and particular topics, and welcomes requests at any time for individual consultations on learning to learn.
