Conquering Your Tests
Students will learn how to create a study schedule, the importance of reviewing, test taking skills and moving beyond surface level learning. Students will learn how to apply the Forgetting Curve and Spaced practicing to their everyday studying. With these skills, the student should be able to be more prepared and relaxed when it comes to preparing for any of their tests or exams.
Take Notes Like a Pro
This workshop is to introduce students to a variety of different note taking methods and guidelines of what to do before, during, and after classes. During this session we hope that students will learn new note taking methods and how to apply them to their courses.
Read Less, Understand More
Do you find it difficult to focus or determine what information is important when you read your textbook? Do you reread entire chapters before exams?
Students will learn how to use active reading strategies to improve comprehension. Students can leverage these techniques to improve concentration, better prepare for class, increase understanding of course material, study more effectively, and create study tools for exams.
Developing Goals & a Mindset for Success
When it comes to academics, much like many aspects of life, there may be many things that we want to accomplish. But identifying what is most important, coming up with a strategy to accomplish, and ultimately staying motivated can be a challenge.
In this workshop, we review identifying what you see is most important, use a strategy to make the goals achievable, and ways to stay motivated to learn by having a growth mindset.
Take Control of Your Time
Ever find yourself feeling like there isn’t enough time in the day? How is it even remotely possible to balance work, life, family and school while still exceeding in all areas? During this workshop, you will learn about organizing your calendar, prioritizing tasks, and other effective time management strategies. It’s time to spend less time putting out fires every day and more time decreasing stress and developing solid plans for today, tomorrow, and the future.
