Event description
Are you struggling to learn new concepts in your classes? Do you know what it takes to become an effective learner?

About this Event

Chances are that you grew up associating learning with memorizing knowledge that could be demonstrated in a multiple-choice test, but there is value in the process of learning. Being an “active learner” and learning through discovery is about taking ownership and self-directing your own growth and development. We invite you to gain the skills, practical tools and techniques that will change the way you approach learning.

In this workshop, you will learn:

  • How to deal with procrastination
  • How your brain processes information
  • Tips and tricks that will help you learn faster

Who should attend?

Diversity drives innovation. Our events are open to students eager to learn, gain new skills, and build their network.
