Post-Exam Debrief

In this workshop we will review both graded and non-graded course materials (midterms, homework, and suggested readings or problems) in order to dissect questions so you understand what is being asked of you. You will learn to take stock of what you know to determine how you can organize that knowledge into appropriate answers to improve your learning.

Time Management

Do you ever find yourself procrastinating on assignments or studying until the very last minute? In this workshop we will discuss techniques such as the Time Matrix, Semester on a Page, The Ultimate Schedule, and how to make the most of to-do lists. This workshop is great for figuring out where all your time goes and how to budget your time so you still have time for fun.
