What:Sabrina Zavaglia – a cognitive learning and study style strategist, will lead an introduction to effective study techniques that will help students master academic material more quickly and attain a deeper understanding of material while making better neural connections to develop long lasting memories. Jean Marie Stein will lead an interactive activity for time management and will discuss the role (positive and negative) that technology plays in time management skills. The course will begin with a brief mindful centering activity designed by Cheryl Brause. Students are encouraged to use this tool before tests and during moments of stress.
