ASC: Supports for Faculty and Staff - In-Class Workshops

About the Study Skills Workshops

Staff at the ASC are available to deliver study skills workshops to your classes. Each workshop guides students through active learning strategies needed for success at college. All workshops are designed to be student-centered and interactive, and are best delivered when modified to suit the specific needs of RRC programs. We encourage the instructors' presence to help contextualize the content of the workshops as they relate to their courses. Please book well in advance to ensure ASC staff have time to modify workshop plans to suit your program’s current needs. 

Active Learning Strategies 

This workshop explores time-tested study tips to increase understanding and ability to recall course material. Students will be encouraged to try strategies as they learn and recall the valuable knowledge and skills shared with them.

Habits of Successful Students

This workshop underscores college habits that boost your academic performance. Students will learn evidence-based habits of successful students and be challenged to integrate skills into their own study routine.

Writing for College

This workshop focuses on the pre-writing, writing and re-writing stages of academic and professional communications including: analyzing assignment instructions, scheduling the steps for the academic writing process, researching, organizing ideas, editing, and writing APA citations.

Effective Note-Taking

This workshop highlights the purpose and benefits of active listening for effective note-taking. Students will practice one of three note-taking systems introduced during the session and will walk-away with strategies they can employ before, during, and after taking notes.

Other Customized Workshops

ASC tutors are available to design and deliver activity-based learning strategy workshops that fit your program’s specific needs.
