Professors and Teaching Assistants (TAs)

In your courses, professors and TAs are the best sources of academic support. You can visit them during office hours or make appointments to ask specific questions and get clarification about course content. Professors and TAs often give advice about studying skills. The following video series summarizes what most of them advise based on psychological science:

  1. Beliefs That Make You Fail…Or Succeed

  2. What Students Should Understand About How People Learn

  3. Cognitive Principles for Optimizing Learning

  4. Putting the Principles for Optimizing Learning into Practice

  5. I Blew the Exam, Now What?
