LLIT Program

Main content start

The Learning Lab Ignition Term or LLIT Program is a quarter-long experience that infuses individualized goal-setting and strategy-building to advance your academic acuity and self-awareness.  You will be paired with a dedicated Learning Specialist with whom you will meet four times for 45 minutes during the quarter.  Register for up to 3 quarters of LLIT; quarters can be non-consecutive.

  1. Enter your academic goals when you register.  Goals for the quarter can be general such as “Improve my time management skills” or specific such as “Finish drafting the second chapter of my dissertation and outline the third chapter."  Then take the LASSI, a brief and confidential self-assessment that will launch our discussion around learning (please take the LASSI only once).
  2. Receive a welcome email from your Learning Specialist and book your appointments by the end of the second week of the quarter.  These are appointments to attend as you would a class.
  3. Examine your goals, strengths, and areas to strengthen with your Learning Specialist.  We'll ask you to reflect on who you are as a thinker and learner and what you're working on right now.  Together, we'll design strategies and next steps in a personal portfolio. 
  4. Calibrate and invent new practices through subsequent meetings.  The LLIT experience is iterative and individualized so that you walk away with a set of strategies just right for you.
