Study Strategies

"The art of true memory is the art of attention." - Samuel Johnson

Students develop and apply strategies in conjunction with current courses, assessing their progress through the techniques taught to them in Aylward-Dunn Learning Center sessions. Study strategies include the following:

  • Time management
  • Setting goals
  • Textbook reading and note taking
  • Lecture note taking
  • Test preparation
  • Test taking

The Aylward-Dunn Learning Center staff can also create workshops for Rockhurst students. These workshops focus on strategies that ensure success in the college classroom: getting organized, analyzing academic achievement, and generating appropriate strategies for maximizing performance.
