Does your studying mainly involve memorizing facts? Do you forget most of what you've learned once the semester ends? Are you ready to move from memorization to mastery of course concepts? Attend our workshop on MARGE, drawn from UC Berkeley Professor, Arthur Shimamura's MARGE: A Whole-Brain Learning Approach for Students and Teachers. We will use the principles in this text, coupled with our experience working with students to provide you with a framework for understanding how learning works and how you can customize your study strategies to maximize your capacity to retain, analyze and generate knowledge.
