Setting Up For Success Workshops
At the beginning of the fall and spring semesters, Learning Resources offers one-hour Setting Up for Success workshops on time management and study skills. Lower your stress, enhance your academic performance, and make sure you have space for self-care, friendships, jobs, and all the other pursuits that create your Middlebury experience.
Enhancing performance in these areas maximizes academic success and scholastic achievement for all learners:
- Time and workload management
- Effective note-taking
- Reading skills enhancement
- Test-taking preparation
Connect with a Learning Resources Advisor
The majority of Middlebury students utilize CTLR services, which are provided free as part of a comprehensive Middlebury experience. Learning Resources staff work with students on academic development in all disciplines and at every stage of their Middlebury education.
We approach our work with students with sensitivity to neurodiversity issues, identities, and diversities.
ACE Peer Tutors
Most students benefit by initially meeting with an ACE (Academic Consultant for Excellence). ACEs are experienced Middlebury students who can share time management tools and other strategies for balancing academic work and self care.
- Book an ACE appointment in the CTLR Scheduler (go/appt).
- Stop by the Anti-Procrastination Station in the CTLR (Lib 225) for ACE drop-in hours.
For issues such as neurodiversity, professional staff are available to meet.
- Sign up for a 30 minute consult.
- Stop by open office hours in the CTLR Suite (Lib 225F).
Collaborating with Faculty
Learning Resources collaborates with faculty on professional development opportunities to design innovative, effective teaching environments, and refine faculty’s workload and time management. This in turn impacts students workload and time management through strategic syllabi development.
In addition, with faculty and the deans in Student Life, Learning Resources implements prevention and intervention initiatives for students who are at academic risk. The Director also works one-on-one with students who face challenges related to learning style or learning disabilities.
