Academic Workshop with the Student Success Centre

On-Line Learning

Wednesday, October 19, 2022

3:00 pm to 4:00 pm

So, you're in an online class? While online learning offers flexibility in your learning experience, it also requires self-discipline. It's easy to get distracted and fall behind as you must create your own structure and there is no weekly class to remind you of what needs to be done and keep you accountable. Planning ahead is key when it comes to online learner readiness.
