Grace from SLSS and I are running some exam preparation sessions

I don’t want to scare you but exams are coming up. If you want some tips on how to prepare for them, come hear Grace from SLSS and I talk about exam preparation and tackling procrastination at two sessions in October. Details in post. Reading time ~ 2 minutes.

I recently got to co-present with a Flinders colleague, Grace from Student Learning Support Services. We talked about tackling procrastination. Grace came at the topic from a study skills perspective. I came at the topic from a psychological perspective. The session was enjoyable and we believe valuable for those in attendance.

Like all good superhero team-ups (think Avengers) there was always going to be a sequel 🦸‍♀️🦸‍♂️

In October, as part of the ‘How to Adult’ series being run out of Oasis, we are doing two sessions on Exam Prep and Managing Procrastination.

The first is on the 26th October at 2pm at the Oasis Community Centre. The second is on the 31st October at 2pm online in Collaborate. As you might have guessed, we have a good feeling about the 2pm timeslot.

The blurb for the presentation is below.

➡ Feeling under pressure with your upcoming exams? Want to study but finding it hard to sit down and do it? We’ve got you covered!
