Teach Yourself How to Learn
Thursday, January 20, 2022, 1:00-1:50 p.m.
Learn Dr. Saundra McGuire's strategies 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!
