The Teach Students How to Learn online workshop focuses on how to teach students key strategies that can help them
not only survive in your course and college, but thrive! You can teach students how to learn. You can teach them that “learning is a process—not an activity that happens while they’re sitting in class, or something that occurs the night before an exam.” In this workshop, you will develop, practice and receive feedback on a strategy that works and that you can use immediately!

The workshop includes multiple opportunities for interaction and feedback from an experienced coach and other workshop participants. It's fast-paced, includes firm due dates for activities, and active participation is required.

Note:  You will need to purchase the book, Teach Students How to Learn prior to beginning the workshop. Either the ebook or paper copy is acceptable. Further purchase information is available upon completion of registration.

Registration closes August 8, 2019.

Cancellations received after the workshop commences (start date of the workshop or event) are not eligible for a refund.
