Study Groups

Interested in forming a study group for your course?  The following steps can help you create and run effective groups.


1. Get Other Students Involved

  • Ask your professor if you can make an announcement to the class about forming a study group or invite classmates in your lab or discussion groups.
  • Be sure to get group members’ names, email addresses, and/or phone numbers.
  • Consider using a Doodle Poll to find a common time and establish a location.

2. Review the Study Group Guide for ways of creating an effective study group

The Study Group Guide outlines ways you can establish and run an effective study group. The guide also includes group study activities and backup-plan recommendations for working in a remote environment. 


3. Consider Your Platform 

Humboldt Learning Center Discord was created to help students easily stay in touch and share study resources with one another. Study groups aren't required to make an account and use Discord, but we recommend it as a useful study-group tool. Please note: You must create an account to access Discord. 

If Discord isn't for you, you can use other methods to communicate, meet up, and share resources. Consider using Humboldt email, GoogleChat, Google Drive, Google Calendar, or "Remind." Of course, you can meet in person with your study group, but that's just one of many ways to meet and support each other.
