Session Overviews


How to make the most of virtual learning

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a seismic shift in education, with teaching at schools, colleges and universities largely moving online. The webinar offers advice on adapting to this new situation with advice on how to manage your time, develop new study habits & avoid procrastination.

Building resilience

You will be guided through the main topics that contribute to building resilience. There are periodic slides that include time for self-reflection, with advice on resources you might need and the options for completing the self-reflection exercises. The five sections of the workshop will cover areas such as how to embrace vulnerability, identifying worries and fears and changing your mindset, with hints and tips on building resilience. This also includes building resilience for University.

Session Overviews


Making the most of isolation and change

The past year has brought us challenging and changing times, from not being able to see our family and friends to affecting how we study and work. This workshop will address some of these issues, giving you the opportunity to reflect on some of your personal worries and concerns. We will provide you with some practical hints and tips on how you might be able to deal with them more positively and make the most of the current challenging situation.

Revision skills

How do memories turn into knowledge? How do I learn best? How do I avoid procrastination? This workshop explores these questions by introducing students to the role of memory in learning and the difference between passive and active learning. Students will explore learning style preferences before being provided with practical tips and tricks such as how to turn distractions into rewards for that motivational boost.
