Student Academic Success Services Webinars Fall 2018

Queen's Student Academic Success Services (SASS) is hosting three webinars for distance students this Fall 2018!

See the topics, descriptions and dates below.

Reading, Taking Notes, and Learning Efficiently
September 12 from 4 - 5 pm EDT

University courses can sometimes seem like a blur: everything’s too complicated, explained too fast, and you just forget everything afterward anyway. In this seminar, we’ll help you pay attention to the most important parts of the lecture and your readings, organize your information in an effective way, and explain how to work from lecture and reading material when you’re writing assignments or revising for exams.

Writing University-Level Assignments
October 3 from 4 - 5 pm EDT

Writing your first university assignment is tough! What do professors look for, how is your writing expected to be different from high school, and why do you have to write so many papers at university? We’ll take you step-by-step through a process that will both develop and highlight your academic and critical thinking, and help you to express complex ideas in clear writing.

Exam Prep
November 28 from 4 - 5 pm EST

Taking your first exams at Queen’s can be a leap into the unknown: it seems like there’s too much to learn, it’s tough to work out what professors are looking for, and exam situations can be nerve-wracking. We’ll help you improve your study habits as you prepare for your exams.
