Study Smart – Introducing effective learning strategies

Did you know that 75% of the students use ineffective learning strategies when preparing for their exams and tutorials? When entering university, it is difficult to find a good study strategy. Based on decades of cognitive psychological research on learning, Maastricht University’s (UM) School of Health Professions Education and the UM Institute for Education Innovation (EDLAB) have identified a number of effective and ineffective

learning strategies and designed the Study Smart programme, aiming to create awareness of, practice with, and reflection on effective learning strategies. Next to the design of the workshops, over the last four years, it has been our goal to make the workshops available to all Maastricht University students. As the central university institute for education innovation, EDLAB can disseminate and sustainably implement education innovations.

During my presentation I will base myself on the evaluation report of the Study Smart programme: 1) reflecting on the development and evaluation of the Study Smart programme as well as 2) sharing our experiences regarding the university-wide implementation of a successful education innovation.
