Strategies for Time Management & Combating Procrastination

Procrastinating is easy, but so is managing your time, once you have a few strategies to work with. Learn about tools and strategies to effectively manage your time, and to manage procrastination, too.

Concentration, Distraction & Effective Study Sessions

To have an effective study session, you need to be able to concentrate. This isn’t new news, but it can be difficult. Learn strategies and techniques that can help you work effectively and succeed in your study sessions.

Learning During Times of Stress

Your experience matters, and we want to equip you with the information to recognize what you’re feeling, how it might show up, and how to support yourself through it. We’ll discuss the common themes of overwhelm, fatigue, and burnout, share coping strategies, and have time for questions and next steps.

The Writing Process & Time Management

Writing is a process that takes energy, concentration and time--things we might be running short on these days.  Join us to think through steps of the writing process and discuss how to manage time effectively. Together we will explore how to navigate these elements and follow through with a written end-product.

Time Management & Study Strategies: From Now to the End of the Term

It’s halfway through the term. How’s it all going? What’s working, and what’s been a challenge? Join this workshop to ask your questions, hear from your peers, and identify tools and strategies that can support you in your time management and studying for the second half of the term.

Motivation – In Concept & Practice

Motivation is a popular topic – different ways to motivate, what to do when it’s hard to motivate, things that can disrupt motivation, etc. We’ll explore concepts, practice strategies, and identify potential next-steps to help us navigate the motivation challenge.

Test Prep & the Science of Learning

Preparing for tests can feel daunting, and let’s be real – often, we wait until the last minute. Beginning your test preparation early can help you harness your brain’s strengths and reduce stress. Join us to learn how your brain works and what it takes for it to truly learn something, and then head off into effective test preparation.

Concentration, Distraction & Effective Study Sessions - Finals Edition

To prepare for finals, you need to be able to concentrate. This isn’t new news, but it can be difficult. Learn strategies and techniques that can help you work effectively in your study sessions as you get ready for finals.
