Learning Strategies Workshops

SMU students often find that they need focused attention on one or more specific academic skills—and the Academic Skill Development office, located in the Altshuler Learning Enhancement Center, is here to provide help in the form of workshops on a wide variety of college-level study techniques.

In 45-60 minute sessions, students receive instruction in specific concepts and discover strategies for applying these principles to their own work. Whether you’re just entering the university or confronting the challenges of an advanced curriculum, you can benefit from sessions on Time Management, Test Preparation, Note Taking, and more. When you claim the skills to make your academic experience more efficient and effective, you improve your entire university experience.

Workshops will be held in person and via Zoom. Reservations are required for workshops. Click on the workshop schedule to review workshop days/times and register for workshops.
