College Training

The Strategic Memory Advanced Reasoning Training, or SMART, is based on more than 25 years of cognitive brain research and includes interactive sessions to improve cognitive performance and brain function. SMART teaches students how to think and reason rather than what to think, arming them with effective tools to apply to any information with which they are presented and tasks they face.

Benefits of SMART:

SMART is a series of nine cognitive strategies that can be applied to any learning context. As traditional college students progress through these steps, they learn to discard unsuccessful and superficial learning styles and to adopt a more robust, focused, and deeper-level strategic learning approach.
