1. What will I do differently/better in the second semester?
Tuesday, January 19, 2021 | 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Reflection is a key skill at all levels of life. Knowing how to accurately reflect as opposed to just "feeding the critical mind" is important. Looking at factors related to your learning, changing expectations and how to adapt, as well as how to creatively create a more personal relationship with your learning are all important facets to second semester performance, and hopefully beyond!!
2. Handling the Uncontrollables:
Identify, Illuminate, and Eliminate Distractions
Monday, February 1, 2021 | 6:00pm - 7:00pm
How many times have you sat down to study, and realized just how important it is to reorganize your apps or create file folders for every single paper you have ever written, or feel the need to conquer the next level of Call of Duty? These are not distractions since they are already in your normal repertoire. However, WHEN you need to be doing them is a different matter. Find some creative solutions to managing distractions by learning about focus, prioritizing your goals, and then strategizing how to meet the goals effectively.
3. Gravitating Toward my Excellence:
Wellness does not just mean Absence of Illness
Tuesday, February 23, 2021 | 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Operating at a subpar level seems almost expected these days. Or any days. However, since it has been a long time since we did not operate at a subpar level, we may not even know we are! Discovering how you are managing your wellness, establishing a stronger understanding for specific areas to improve, and then putting plans into action can lead to lower levels of stress, clearer thinking, better concentration, and even more quality rest.
4. Gearing up for the Final Grind:
Study and Exam-taking Strategies
Thursday, March 18, 2021 | 6:00pm - 7:00pm
This is a real thing! Ok, at least the anxiety is the real thing. The exam, well, I guess that is also. How did they became a pairing, a duo, a coupling? We made them this way. An exam is NOT an anxious thing - it is a piece (or multiple pieces) of paper. Or, in this case, multiple PDF pages to scroll past, or questions to scan on a screen. Regardless, let's work together to get to know this anxiety-friend, note strategies to thrive in preparing for a different exam experience, and get to know this process a little better. Who knows, maybe exams will just become that... an exam. Let's focus on one thing at a time, shall we? Together?
