BISC Online+

The Academic Success program is a series of workshops based on the workshops offered by main campus’ Student Academic Success Services and planned to complement BISC 100 and 101 workshops. Academic Success workshops cover a range of topics from effective note-taking to writing a strong thesis statement to studying for multiple choice exams. Students also have the option to meet one-on-one with the Academic Success facilitator to discuss study skills or any aspect of the writing process, for both lab reports and essays. Topics recently covered include:

  • Note-taking
  • Active Reading
  • Thesis Statements
  • Essays: Supporting your Argument
  • Writing Style
  • Presentation Skills
  • Compare & Contrast Essays
  • Essays: Making an Outline
  • Studying for Long and Short Answer Questions
  • Studying for Multiple Choice
  • BISC 100/101 Workshops

Throughout each term, there are several skills building workshops.  These workshops will be designed to improve student research, essay writing, and presentation skills.  While it is mandatory that students attend a minimum of two workshops, students are encouraged to attend more than that.  Attendance for each workshop will earn students an additional percentage point toward their final attendance and participation grade.

Research Support

BISC students also have individual access to our onsite Research Director, who holds regular office hours to help students with all aspects of research as they work up their assignments.
