Two Quick Notes: Volunteers and Steroids

December 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.

    I’d love to join one of these: except I’m not in college yet.

    Maybe next year.

  2. I just finished being interviewed by scott for his learning on steroids program and from what he’s shown me the program looks really good for anyone who’s interested in advancing their knowledge of holistic learning. Also he’s got plenty of bonuses “including me” so you’ll be getting a lot of content when you sign up for the program.

    I signed up a while back. I’ll let you know what I think about it.

    I did an interview for the program as well. With Scott, we always setup some set time, say an hour, to do an interview, and then end up talking for two or three.

    This idea definitely has potential. Can you let me know how it works out? I would love to interview you and find out how it all went. I am a personal supporter of student groups for class and how much they can help. Anyway, I’d appreciate it if you could let me know. I would love to feature you on my nontraditional student website too.

    I would love to join one of these study groups, and I might even start one.

  7. Love Scotts blog. Been reading it for years since started University and this one for a similar length of time but never thought to comment. Cheers for the link Cal, signed up to his mailing list.
