Form a study group or find a study partner who you can discuss key topics or ideas with. 2. Read your notes or textbook out loud. 3. Record your instructor’s lectures (with permission) and listen after class or listen to any podcasts of class information.
  • 8. Read/Write To expand your read/write learning style, adopt one of these practices as you learn: 1. Take detailed lecture notes; the goal is to take notes that are nearly word-for-word what the faculty member shares. 2. Write out your lecture notes multiple times (to practice being a multimodal learner, use different colors to record your notes or draw pictures to illustrate key concepts).
