Retention and time management are essential skills for academic success in any learner. Most contemporary students are busied with career and family commitments outside of their program requirements and course loads. There are steps that can be taken before and during your term to achieve better retention and understanding of your courses’ content while navigating personal needs and responsibilities. In this workshop, participants will create a personal learning resource to reference throughout their terms filled with strategies they can begin to apply to their learning immediately.
