You Can Improve Your Study Skills With This Video Course
You can’t always do everything, but it can be good to know what you can do, and learn from what you already know, according to a new video course offered by the National Institute of Health.
The course, called The Study Skills Challenge, focuses on helping people develop and maintain study skills.
“It’s a way for us to learn from each other, to see how we can be better, to learn more, and to be better learners,” said Dr. Robert Zellner, director of the National Institutes of Health’s Center for Advanced Research in the Behavioral Sciences.
The goal of the challenge is to help people improve their study skills by using video lessons, quizzes and other techniques to help them get started.
“I think this is a great opportunity for people to learn, to get help, to share their expertise,” Zeller said.
“This is a way to share knowledge, to teach others, and hopefully to improve their ability to study.”
The study skills challenge was created by the Institute for Health Education Research, a nonprofit, nonpartisan research organization.
It is part of the NIH’s ongoing efforts to advance education and research to help make the U.S. a world leader in health care, education and knowledge.
“There are a lot of people out there who need to learn new skills, but they can’t find a way,” Zillner said.
“This is the way to get them started.”
The course’s content is focused on the science behind the study skills concept.
It includes tips on developing and using study skills to learn things like how to read and write, what to wear, how to use computers, how best to organize information, and how to work in teams.
“The study and learning challenges are an excellent way to explore the many ways people learn,” said Andrew J. Blanford, the institute’s vice president for research and outreach.
“We think this will be a valuable addition to our curriculum and research.”
