Instructor Sit Down: A Q&A with Tamryn Spruill

Tamryn Spruill was standing in a cranberry field, on an island off the coast of Finland, and thinking.

She had headed to Europe as a reprieve after the economic collapse in 2007 forced her out of her job at a Manhattan law firm where she worked as a finance editor. She had climbed the corporate ladder there after beginning her professional life by earning a journalism degree at the University of South Carolina.

Now, with Wall Street in ruins, Tamryn stepped back and realized that this was her new beginning. And she embraced it.

“It became clear that when I returned to the U.S. I would get out of the rat race of New York City to pursue something that excited me creatively, intellectually, and spiritually. Like many who endured the hardship of layoff but found it to be a blessing in disguise,” she said. Read More…

Instructor’s Blog: Final Exam Tips from an Instructor’s Perspective

Many students are stressed about final exams, and I’d like to offer some strategies to alleviate some of that stress.  The first step for succeeding at a final exam is to find out what you can about your final exam. There is usually a brief description of the final exam located in the tracking calendar (which is your best friend!). Also, many final exams are not timed, which means you can open the activity and submit it at a later date. Here are a few more final exam tips to remember this semester and beyond:

Final exams are not mysteries

Final exams are not meant as a torture device, testing students on random, obscure knowledge. Your final exam will address course outcomes (which are also in the tracking calendar) and content presented throughout the course. Preparing for a final exam, even before you can view it, should involve reviewing lectures, textbook reading and especially past assignments. Look closely at the feedback from your instructor. Identify areas where you struggle and focus on those. Read More…

Five Skills Emphasized by Online Learning

Many students find the flexibility and diversity of online courses appealing, but online learning also emphasizes a number of skills that prospective students should have (or should be able to build) to excel in this class format. These skills include:

  1. Flexibility

The flexibility of online learning is a large part of its appeal, but it’s important to note that it also requires flexibility from its students. Online education uses different strategies and tools than traditional in-person education, and online learners must be open to these potentially unfamiliar methods, as well as willing to go outside their comfort zone.

3 Resources for Extra Help as an Online Student

Being an online student has many perks. Online classes are often more flexible than in-person courses, which means you may be able to do your classwork whenever it best fits in your schedule. Online education also incorporates a wide variety of subjects, and you may not be limited to what is being offered on the physical campus that semester. But leaving the brick and mortar classroom, and a teacher who you see face-to-face regularly, can be an intimidating experience that leaves you unsure of where to turn when you need extra help in a course. Fortunately, there are many resources available online, just like your class. Here are three key resources for online students: Read More…

Instructor Blog: Key Habits of “A” Students

After teaching for over seven years, I wanted to share some attributes of successful students. All students have challenges with work and family obligations, but there are characteristics that “A” students share despite obstacles and commitments.

Plan, Plan, Plan

One of the best practices of my most successful students is looking over assignments early in the week. This allows plenty of time to email instructors with any questions as well as produce your best possible work.

Print the Tracking Calendar

We don’t want our students to be surprised. Instructors spend time creating a tracking calendar that outlines assignments and due dates. Spending the time writing assignments on your personal calendar can prevent end of session stress!  Also, often times the directions for a major assessment such as a portfolio project or midterm will be posted early. My best students begin looking at the directions and asking questions, even in week 1!                                                                                         Read More…

New Blended Programs at Bryant & Stratton College Combine the best of Campus and Online

Whether you’re trying to run errands, mow the lawn, make dinner or attend school; time is rarely on your side. So, rather than try to figure out how to fit a full time course load into your busy schedule, Bryant & Stratton College has an alternative.

We are proud to introduce two new blended degree programs for students pursuing an associate degree in Medical Reimbursement and Coding or Business. Our new blended programs provide students the fit and feel of a true on-campus degree program with the added flexibility and convenience of an online program. The hallmark of our blended degree programs is that students are only expected to be on campus one day a week. The rest of your coursework is completed online!

Students will take two classes at a time over a seven and a half week session. This schedule combines to equate to five full-time semesters, meaning you earn your degree in the same amount of time as a student who is going 100% on campus or online. Read More…
