By increasing academic rigor, STUDENT SUCCESS IN COLLEGE: DOING WHAT WORKS!, SECOND EDITION builds research-based knowledge about what study skills work; teaches students how to engage with scholarly sources; provides opportunities for students to actively read, critically think, and enhance information literacy skills; and supports students to increase their self-efficacy and motivation.

About the Author:

Dr. Christine Harrington is the executive director of the New Jersey Center for Student Success at the New Jersey Council of County Colleges. In this position, she works with colleagues at all 19 community colleges on student success initiatives, including reimagining the Student Success Course within the Guided Pathways framework. Dr. Harrington has been working in higher education for 16 years at Middlesex County College in New Jersey. For the first half of her career at Middlesex County College, she worked in Student Services as a counselor and disability services provider. She then became a full-time professor of psychology and student success and served as the director for the Center for the Enrichment of Learning and Teaching, a professional development center for faculty, and as the Student Success Course coordinator. She is a licensed psychologist with a Ph.D. in counseling psychology, an M.A. in counseling and personnel services, and a B.A. in psychology. Dr. Harrington was the 2016 recipient for the Excellence in Teaching First-Year Seminars Award. She has been teaching the Student Success Course at the community college level for over 15 years, and she currently teaches graduate courses on course design, assessment and feedback, as well as teaching strategies for the Graduate School of Education at Rutgers University. Dr. Harrington is a national expert on student success and the scholarship of teaching and learning. She frequently presents at national conferences, colleges and universities. In 2017, she was invited to give the plenary address on Increasing Academic Rigor in the First-Year Seminar at the 36th Annual Conference on the First-Year Experience in Atlanta, GA, and she gave the plenary address on Dynamic Lecturing at the Conference on Higher Education Pedagogy at Virginia Tech, VA and at the Evidence-Based Teaching and Learning Lilly Conference in Bethesda, MD.

Review:

"Teaching any first-year experience course is a challenge given the varied institutional purposes of the course. Student Success in College helps meet that challenge by accomplishing several things - exploring research that is important to understanding students, providing many activities that engage the students with each other and the instructor, and meaningful chapters with content that supports student success."

"With our previous text, it was difficult to get students to buy into the advice that was offered because they felt like it was just common sense. In contrast, the advice in the Harrington text is based on peer-reviewed research, so students see it as valid and relevant. Since it has been scientifically proven to work with others, students believe it will work for them also and are more apt to try out the suggested strategies. I would recommend STUDENT SUCCESS IN COLLEGE: DOING WHAT WORKS! as an effective text for any student success course. It provides all of the appropriate study skills information in a unique format, using research to prove the effectiveness of the techniques and modeling their use throughout the text. Most importantly, the text sets a high standard for students by forcing them to think critically about the material and how they can use it in their own lives."
