ED-D 101 lab instructors

ED-D 101: Learning Strategies for University Success is a popular first year course that teaches students skills for success in university, including reading, note taking, studying, time management, and assignment work in their current undergraduate courses.

Students learn to apply theory to examine their own learning and experiment with new strategies for learning.

Dr. Allyson Hadwin often teaches ED-D 101, and EPLS graduate students teach the lab components.

If you've ever considered applying as an ED-D 101 lab instructor or your future career goals include teaching at the university level, considering talking to the department about becoming a ED-D 101 lab instructor. Contact us if you're interested.
