Take Two: Pomodoro Study Method

We are putting a new spin on our focus on success tips by launching a new type of segment called "Take Two." Each "Take Two" episode will feature podcast co-hosts focusing solely on one tip mentioned in a previous episode. Each feature will be relatively short and also share new information and links to online resources. With our second “Take Two” episode, we discussed the Pomodoro Study Method. This approach is a great technique for studying smarter instead of harder, which was the focus on Season Two, Episode Six. The Pomodoro Method (which may have other names and can be modified) encourages students to study in small increments in order to better retain the information and prepare for taking timed exams. Tune in to learn about a new technique for success (especially before finals).

Take Two: Study Groups

Starting with this episode, we are putting a new spin on our focus on success tips by launching a new type of segment called "Take Two." Each "Take Two" episode will feature podcast co-hosts focusing solely on one tip mentioned in a previous episode. Each feature will be relatively short and also share new information and links to online resources. In our first "Take Two" episode, Dr. Mebane and Ms. White talked about study groups, a tip mentioned in the five week check in episode with Dr. Khadijah Miller. Study groups are a great way for students to interact with each other, develop collaboration skills and, most importantly, pass the class together. Tune in to learn more about pros and cons (yes, there can be challenges) and the importance of how they are organized.
