What are Learning Strategies workshops? How can they help YOU?

Learning Strategies workshops are a great, easy way to reduce tension in your life, and help you become a better student. These workshops, led by professionally trained peer tutors and created by Dr. Michael Kassel, focus on the little things that sometimes keep students from being successful. Workshops include Time Management, Note Taking, and Reading Comprehension! Workshops are offered weekly, on a walk-in basis!

Winter 2014 weekly walk-in Learning Strategies workshops are held in 285 University Pavilion:

Wednesday, 9 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. with Tutor Melvin Webster

Wednesday, 3 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. with Tutor Irwyn Sadien

Thursday, 5:30 p.m. - 6:45 p.m. with Tutor Matt Hemric

Friday, 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. with Tutor Ayana Ghosh

These subjects are covered in each session:
Time Management

If time is money, are you in the Red or are you in the Black? Time Management will help you figure out if you are “wasting” time, and how you can work to better manage the time that you have.

Note Taking

How much should you write down during a class? How do you write and listen at the same time? Is there a more effective way to organize notes?

Reading Comprehension

Am I supposed to know all the information in my text book? Is there a more effective way to read a text or assigned reading? Learn the trick and tips that make text reading less of a struggle, while increasing comprehension and reducing reading fatigue.

Dr. Kassel is the coordinator of Tutorial Services and Lecturer in History and American Culture.
