How I Replaced Research Note Cards with Evernote
I am so excited to launch The Cafe Scholar blog! I am looking forward to sharing what I have learned – and what I am still learning! – as both a student and a professor to help you study smarter!
I am currently a graduate student and an adjunct professor (and a few other things…), and I got the idea for this blog while teaching a freshman class last semester.  I noticed that many of my students were struggling in school because they didn’t have the right tools in their toolboxes – study skills, time management, productivity, etc.

They didn’t know about all the neat apps out there that can save countless hours, and they didn’t know how to effectively use the apps they did have.  We didn’t have time to cover much of this in class, so I decided to create this blog as a resource for my students – and any students, at any age or level! – to find some more tools and study smarter.  We want to use our time for the actual learning, not all the legwork, right?

 

Here is what you can expect from this blog:

I plan to post twice a week, Mondays and Wednesdays, during the summer, and once a week, on Wednesdays, during the semester.  That might change, but right now that’s the plan!  You might occasionally see extra posts.

I will write about…

  • study skills
  • productivity tips
  • writing awesome research papers from start to finish
  • awesome apps for students
  • budgeting tips for students
  • updates on my progress meeting my own goals

I will be sending out a biweekly newsletter sharing updates from my blog and other resources that will be helpful to you.  Make sure to sign up below!
I will also be building a library of courses and ebooks to help students, such as my 5 day “Word for Students” email course.
This Wednesday I will be starting a 10-week series on writing a research paper from start to finish!
Until then, I would love to hear about your biggest study challenges & questions in the comments below!

When you have to Reorganize a Research Paper

Your organization and structure will probably change several times as you write your paper. Sometimes you come up with a clever way to word your thesis, and then you need to make your paper structure match. Other times, as you are writing and revising, you realize that something might make more sense in a different part of the paper. This can result in a bunch of cut-and-paste madness. It’s kind of a pain, and it is really easy to lose track of something or miss a section as you go, especially if you have to do a lot of scrolling to move a paragraph somewhere else in the paper.

The Cafe Scholar is Back! & My Focus for 2018

That’s right - I’m back!  The past few months I’ve been going through some major transitions and life changes.  I usually wait to share about transitions on social media, but now that the dust has settled, I’m so excited to share what’s been happening in my life and...
