How to learn effectively

introductory course for the SMS students
What can be learnt from this course
Our course is about the skill of learning by yourself. We often think that if we took a class and came to learn then we will definitely become proficient in certain practices. However, education includes content, the form of its transfer, the features of the course organization, and it might happen that one of these components may not be applicable to you. You should not expect that the course organizers will be fully responsible for your academic performance and effectiveness. That is why we offer to learn take responsibility for the results of your education, for which it is necessary to master the skills of managing your own educational projects.
