Learning Specialist

Online Environment Support


The Learning Specialists are here to support any students who are having challenges navigating being in an online environment, as well as any students who want to learn better time management skills, test-taking strategies, or study strategies to be more effective learners in class.  We will continue to conduct one-on-one appointments with students enrolled in the Independent Learning Initiative (ILI Program) virtually through Zoom.  Any other student needing additional support can click the following link to request a virtual LS appointment https://camnercenter.miami.edu/learning-specialist/request-an-appointment/index.html.  Our future scheduled workshops will take place at their currently scheduled time virtually.  If you have specific questions, you can reach our office at iliprogram@miami.edu


The Camner Center for Academic Resources provides the support of a trained learning specialist to undergraduate students. The learning specialist provides guidance to students experiencing difficulty with academic issues related to the transition to college. Students may request a one-on-one meeting with the learning specialist to help develop the skills needed to achieve success in their academic careers. Some of the skills covered during these appointments include time management, effective note-taking, critical textbook reading, organization, test taking, and learning strategies. Appointments with the learning specialist are subject to availability and based on a first come first serve basis.
