For All Eastern Students: Upcoming Global Field Courses

The School of Continuing Education at Students_in_Pisa.JPGEastern has Global Field Courses going to France, London and Paris, London and the Lake District, Nepal, and Florence.

The School of Continuing Education at Eastern, working with many of Eastern's academic departments, offers Global Field Courses (GFC) throughout the academic year. A Global Field Course at Eastern is a one to five week-long experience carrying Eastern course credit, taught in part or entirely on-site in a location away from Eastern.

Why take a Global Field Course? You can travel while earning college credits, try new food, experience new cultures, increase confidence, and learn to adapt to a different environment. A global field courses experience looks good on a resume and demonstrates a success-oriented view toward a global economy.

Study Tips

Study Tips

-          The syllabus is your key as to when tests happen, deadlines for assignments and projects, and contact information.

Studying From Notes

-          Take your  notes for a course and do the following:

-          Keep all the notes for one course in the same notebook and number the pages.

-          Highlight terms and definitions in yellow.

-          Highlight questions and answers in yellow.

-          If you see something you do not understand, highlight it in pink--that means you will ask a question about it on the next day of class.

-          When you do get that answer, rewrite the question with the answer and highlight in yellow.

-          Return to the page where that question was highlighted in pink, checkmark it, and put the page number of the answer.

-          Draw a yellow box around case studies and examples of problems. 

-          Every time you take notes from a class, try to spend at least 30 minutes reviewing it.

Studying from the reading

-          Keep up with the reading

-          Be sure to insert these notes with the appropriate section of study in your notebook so you have consistency.

-          Take notes and write down questions on anything confusing from class

-          Highlight those notes same as above

-          Pre-read the next reading assignment to prepare for class

-          Write up questions on anything confusing

-          Make charts, tables, and diagrams of information to study

-          Take notes in margins of the book

Writing assignments and projects

-          Read carefully and write them out as if they are a test

-          Do as soon as they are assigned.  This gives you extra time if you need to ask the professor additional questions.

Be sure to get enough sleep and eat healthy to optimize your study time.  Need help?  Visit the Academic Services Center at http://www.easternct.edu/asc/  It's located in the lower level of the J.E. Smith Library.
