Who Are UC San Diego's Learning Strategists?

Learning strategists are UC San Diego undergraduate students who have undergone significant training with the founder of LearnWell Projects. They 

  • Are high achieving students
  • Train in collaborative learning and facilitation techniques
  • Train in developing learning goals and strategies to meet university expectations
  • Integrate course content and study strategies
  • Facilitate workshops that encourage communication, community and engaged learning

Who should attend Learning Strategies Workshops or schedule one-on-one appointments with a Learning Strategist?

All current undergraduate students are eligible to attend free drop-in Learning Strategies Workshops or schedule a one-on-one appointment to meet with a Learning Strategist. Students give the following reasons for working with Learning Strategists:

  • “I struggle with anxiety and limiting beliefs and often spend as much time trying to quell my anxiety as I do actually studying.”
  • “My current study methods only focus on short-term and basic understanding, but with my classes building on previous material that I have forgotten I am starting to not be able to keep up.”
  • “I am having trouble adapting to the quarter system.  I am not used to this pace and would like to get support to understand better lecture material, note-taking and get better study skills.”
  • “I’m having trouble managing my time and organizing myself.  It usually causes my priorities to be all over the place, which is causing me a lot of stress.

How can I inform my students about the Learning Strategist Program?

There a number of ways you can inform your students about the option of meeting with a Learning Strategist:

  • Provide a link on the course website to the AAH main webpage
  • Make an announcement about the Learning Strategist program during class
  • AAH can provide you with slides that highlight important Learning Strategist information
  • AAH can send a program representative to speak briefly to your class about the groups
    • Email aah@ucsd.edu to request a representative to speak to your class
  • Inform your TAs about the program and encourage them to make announcements in their discussion sections
  • Refer students to the program during your office hour appointments
