Coming in Spring 2024!

Seminars offered by the Strategic Learning Program are intended to help students learn about the process of learning and understand how they learn best, given their own unique approach to learning. Although the specific focus may vary, seminars generally focus on study strategies, skills and practices, campus resources, and non-cognitive aspects of learning, such as the role of emotions, and how to cultivate resilience and a growth mindset. Students in seminars are also encouraged to sign up for sessions with a Strategic Learning Coach to receive guidance in putting into practice what they are learning in the seminar. Please check back here regularly for updates on current offerings.
