College presents a whole new set of challenges, and even students who excelled in high school will struggle. Going in confident only to be faced with uncertainty can be difficult, but with a bit of strategy, you can learn to be back on top in no time.

In this guide to relearning how to learn, engineer and educator Dr. Karl W. Reid reveals his “Deep Dive” learning method, which he’s taught to countless students as a mentor, director of programs, and associate dean. The approach originated with his own experience. After graduating near the top of his class, Reid headed off to MIT with high expectations. After a distressing failing grade, he realized his old study habits weren’t enough.

Every student hits this wall at some point. The key is to rise up from failure and learn to work smarter. This guide lays out a practical path to academic success. You will learn how to overcome setbacks by building confidence, engage with peers and professors, and take a comprehensive approach to learning, principles that can also be applied to the workplace.

This perspective comes from an academic who overcame personal challenges to excel in the STEM field. If you’re willing to put in the work, this plan will get you through.

About the Author:

Karl W. Reid, EdD, originally worked in the computer industry after graduating with bachelors and masters degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Inspired by Jonathon Kozol’s Savage Inequalities, Reid switched to a career in education. He was employed at MIT—initially as a director of Engineering Outreach Programs and freshman advisor, and working up to associate dean and director of the Office of Minority Education—while attending the Harvard Graduate School of Education for his doctorate. He studied factors that contribute to success for black males in higher education.

In 2014 he was named executive director of the National Society of Black Engineers. The organization’s current main goal is to end the underrepresentation of black engineers in the United States by 2025.

Born in the Bronx, New York, and raised in Roosevelt, New York, Reid now lives in Silver Spring, Maryland. He and his wife, Andrea Reid, MD, have three children and two labradoodles.
