How to Study....Series
Discover specific strategies for How to Study...most effectively. Faculty, as well as students who have successfully mastered the course will share detailed strategies and tips for learning.

Time Management - Tips for Taking Control
Balancing personal, professional and academic commitments, along with spending time with family and friends, can be a challenge. Developing your own system of organization and time management will help you be in control of your life and learning. You will assess your current approach and identify strategies that you can put in place immediately to help you achieve your goals and improve your effectiveness.

Preparing to do the Best on Tests
Doing your best on tests/exams requires a plan. Each course and each exam is different and successful test performance is a process that begins way before the test is given and continues after the test is over. This workshop will discuss the three stages of test-taking and help you establish a test preparation plan that you can use in each of your courses. The time to start preparing for your next exam is NOW!

Study Strategies that Work
Most students know that in order to get good grades, outside study time is important. What many students don't know is what to do to make that study time effective. We will share "The Power Hour" study technique that will help you focus your study time. We will also share active learning strategies so that you get the most out of your studying.

There's an App for That!
Did you know that there are Apps that can help you study? Come to our workshop to find out about free Apps that can help make learning easier for you. Be sure to bring your laptop, iPad, or smart phone device to try them out!
