Time Management 101
Thursday, September 1, 2022, 1:00-1:50 p.m.
In just 50 minutes, we will gain insight into the procrastination dilemma and uncover solutions that include creating a master semester schedule, utilizing the urgency-importance matrix, and minimizing internal and external distractions.

Prevent Plagiarism
Thursday, October 6, 2022, 1:00-1:50 p.m.
All Mercer writing courses require students to have a working knowledge of correct citation procedure and format! Attend this 50-minute workshop to better understand these expectations and to review citation basics, including the differences between quoting, summarizing, and paraphrasing.  

Teach Yourself How to Learn
Thursday, December 3, 2022, 1:00-1:50 p.m.
Learn Dr. Saundra McGuire's techniques for gaining 100% mastery of your coursework! In Dr. McGuire's own words (from her book, Teach Students How to Learn, 2015, p. xv), "Often, teaching students how to learn can be accomplished in one session, in as little as 50 minutes....They can be transformed, in one session, from memorizers and regurgitators to students who begin to think critically and take responsibility for their own learning." In this 50-minute workshop, we will aim to prove Dr. McGuire right!
