Learning Strategies Workshop Series
As a new student, you may be anxious about the adjustment to the academic demands of college coursework. The Academic Resource Center (ARC) at Denison University offers a variety of services designed to 1) enrich and enhance the educational experience of all Denison students and 2) support faculty/student interaction.
This fall semester, we are pleased to offer a Launch into Learning Strategies Workshop Series the week of September 16th.
This workshop series is not remedial; rather it helps students build upon their current approach to academics. By participating in these sessions, students will develop greater competency and confidence in efficient study strategies and familiarization of academic resources across campus. Each day will focus on developing the following strategies associated with academic success:
- Organization & Time Management
- How to Critically Read & Annotate Texts
- Improving Note Taking Skills & Developing a Writing Process
- Study Strategies & Preparing for Exams
- Making use of Faculty Office Hours & Other Campus Resources
The four-day program will be held during the third week of classes (from Monday, September 16th to Thursday, September 19th). By that time in the semester, you should have a variety of reading materials and class notes for reference when applying the techniques covered in the workshop series.
Each 50-minute session is offered five times each day to allow flexibility in academic and campus involvement schedules. You attend one session per day at any time as each covers the same material during a given day.
The workshop series will be presented each day at 11:30 am, 1:30, 3:30, 4:30 and 8 PM. Please be sure to check your schedule to make sure you are available at one of these times during the four days of the program. Enrollment will be limited to students on a first-come-first-served basis. Again, please register for the Launch into Learning Strategies Workshop Series at tinyurl.com/DULaunch
If your schedule does not enable you to attend, we meet individually with students on any of the session topics. To request an appointment visit Higley 020 or call 740-587-6666 to make an appointment. We hope you will consider this opportunity to build upon current study skills and learn new techniques to apply to the rigor of college academic expectations.
