Student Success MPower
|Lynda Webb, Dean
Midland College offers several courses to help improve student study habits and ensure student success.
Courses offered include:
PREP 0370 Basic College Study Skills
EDUC 1100 Effective Learning
Midland College requires that students who fail two more TSI requirements will be enrolled into a PREP 0370 course during their first semester. PREP 0370 is designed to assist college students with the necessary skills needed for academic success and for success in life. PREP 0370 will allow students to explore who they are, where they come from and present options for where they are headed. PREP 0370 will concentrate on areas of success such as motivation, self-esteem, time management, critical thinking, active learning, study skills, decision making, relationship building and personal care.
Midland College’s quality enhancement plan (QEP) is the development and delivery of an enhanced, carefully designed student success seminar. It is the intention of Midland College that this course becomes required of all first-time college students. EDUC 1100 Academic Course Guide Manual course description: A study of the: research and theory in the psychology of learning, cognition, and motivation; factors that impact learning, and application of learning strategies. Theoretical models of strategic learning, cognition, and motivation serve as the conceptual basis for the introduction of college-level student academic strategies. Students use assessment instruments (e.g., learning inventories) to help them identify their own strengths and weaknesses as strategic learners. Students are ultimately expected to integrate and apply the learning skills discussed across their own academic programs and become effective and efficient learners. Students developing these skills should be able to continually draw from the theoretical models they have learned.
