We encourage you to enroll in the Speed Reading and Study Strategies program offered by The University of Oklahoma Outreach, College of Continuing Education, in affiliation with the Institute of Reading Development. In just two weekends, this course will increase your effectiveness as a reader and a student. As a result, you will be better equipped to manage the competing demands on your time.

When most students complete this course, they are able to read textbooks two to three times faster. In easier reading materials, such as most non-fiction books, novels, and journal articles, most students learn to read three to four times faster. This course is designed to help you understand and retain information better, even while reading at these higher speeds. In addition, you will be able to prepare for tests efficiently, without extensive rereading.

Instruction for this course is provided by the Institute of Reading Development. The Institute has provided instruction for The University of Oklahoma for the past 13 years, and also teaches for many other leading universities and colleges.

This four-day program will meet on Saturdays and Sundays for two consecutive weekends. Program dates are October 10, 11, 17 & 18 from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. or 1:30 p.m.-5 p.m.

This is the only Speed Reading and Study Strategies program that will be offered this academic year. Enrollment is limited.
