A workshop series designed to empower students to find a better balance between their academic work and caring for others.
How can I stay organized and on top of my studies this year? What’s the best way to read and take notes that are useful for review? This interactive workshop will answer these questions and more. Stress related to studying can be amplified when there are distractions related to family care underfoot, in the sink, or asking for help with their own homework. Students who find ways to stay organized and study effectively are more productive, gain a deeper understanding from their readings, and have an easier time reviewing notes and thinking critically. Come to learn about studying, reading and note taking from and with other students with family responsibilities.
Facilitator: Learning Strategist at the Academic Success Centre at the University of Toronto.
