Feeling overwhelmed by school? Have the impression you could be doing better? Join us for the study skills workshop where we will look at the various facets of studying, including tips on how to be more organized, study more efficiently and ultimately, to feel more confident.
In this one-day workshop, theory is introduced in short bursts and participants spend the majority of time practicing their presentation skills while receiving feedback.
The focus on extensive practice and feedback is what makes the program meaningful, and is what makes the learning stick.
In this workshop, participants will be taught to identify problems and use problem-solving techniques to find efficient solutions. Participants will look at ways in which problems arise, where they arise and how problems can be identified. Next, they will be introduced to an easily applicable 7 step problem-solving technique. Through these concepts, participants will learn to take into account the bigger picture and solve problems successfully.
