Student Best Practices

As a student, you have a wide range of resources that you must knit together in a way that matches your learning style.

– set a goal of 100%  attendance
– come to class prepared (study at home or during a lab)
– totally committed to learn
– curious, willing to explore
– focused in class:
– know why you’re here
– apply the skills you learn to a personal project


In the classroom, you can expect

– instructor-led demonstration, instruction, guidance, feedback
– in class practice, questions, discussion
– student note-taking during class


Outside of the classroom, reach for these resources

– practice time at home, during lab hours
– recommended book(s), online books through sfpl.org
– web-based articles, tutorials, videos
