VPTL 53: Working Smarter

Once you get into the school of your dreams, how will you be sure you can succeed there? The level of organization and study skills necessary for college success are often very different than in high school settings. This class will use research-based practices to help students gain insight into effective learning strategies and approaches to time management, while honing skills in reading, studying, writing, discussion, and oral presentation. This class is appropriate for students who wish to prepare for college, as well as for those already in college who wish to revisit and expand their set of strategies for successful learning.

VPTL 110: Stanford, I Screwed Up!: Becoming a Resilient Learner

Everyone fails at something. Learning from failure, finding meaning or purpose in it, and being able to share it with others, are the cornerstones to building resilience that will support lifelong learning. Using research and literature from the fields of learning sciences, psychology, and creative expression and performance, students will be asked to explore and reflect on their own academic setbacks, how they have come to understand the notions of success and failure, examine their approaches to learning including everything from skills and strategies to issues of self-relevance and motivation. Each student will develop a "failure story" from personal experience that will eventuate to a 5-minute live performance of poetry, spoken-word, storytelling, or song, or other contribution, which will be presented at The Resilience Project's annual "Stanford, I Screwed Up!" the first Thursday of Spring quarter.
