Two Quick Notes: Volunteers and SteroidsDecember 10th, 2009 · 9 comments
Please excuse a brief interruption from our normally scheduled programming. I have two quick notes that I think might interest many of you…
Looking for a Few Good Volunteers
One of my eventual goals for Study Hacks is to support student groups on college campuses around the world. These groups would meet regularly and use the Study Hacks canon to help figure out their college life. They would also blog about their experience, providing a wealth of examples for other students to follow.
I want to launch a few small pilot groups during this upcoming semester. If you’re interested in starting one of these groups on your campus, send me an e-mail.
Among other benefits, you and your group members will get a lot of one and one interaction with me regarding your personal overhaul efforts.
Learning on Steroids
One of my favorite bloggers, Scott Young, recently announced a program called Learning on Steroids. The goal is to help you implement what he calls rapid learning strategies in your student life. The program “fills the gap between [information] consumption and action,” and provides “detailed implementation strategies, personal help and a kick in the ass to get started.”
In other words, it’s meant to help you go from reading about being a better student to actually becoming one.
You can read more about it here. I’m mentioning it now because he’s launching a limited beta test of the program in January. If you think you might be interested, click here to sign up for his pre-launch mailing list while space still remains.
