Find Study Partners and Groups

For instructors: If you are an instructor, you can share the message below with your class. It is important to remind students of your expectations regarding group work and academic integrity.

Study partners can help you learn! Studying with peers is a great way to connect with other students and is a powerful tool for learning challenging material in this course. Cornell’s Learning Strategies Center (LSC) can help match you with study partners. To find out more about study groups and partners and to sign-up, visit the LSC’s Studying Together webpage

A PowerPoint slide for sharing this information in class is available here:

Resources for Learning Online

To learn effectively online you will need to make an effort to stay engaged with your coursework, with your peers, and with your instructors. To be successful, you cannot expect to just watch videos and take some tests! You will need to participate actively in your courses – the Learning Strategies Center (LSC) has developed resources to help you as you learn remotely this semester and to help you manage your time.

LSC Motivation Station

Sometimes just being in the presence of your peers doing work can motivate you to get moving on your own work. If you are looking for a virtual study space, the LSC has Motivation Stations where you can work independently alongside other students in Zoom (cameras on, mics off). The Motivation Station is staffed by LSC tutors. If you’d like, the tutors are available to help you set goals (via chat or a breakout room) for your time in the Motivation Station, or just come and do your work–it’s up to you!
