The College of Education, Psychology and Social Work is holding a Uni Survival and Success Seminar next week. All students are welcome to attend, although the event content will be particularly relevant to you if you’re:
- a new student
- returning to study after a long break
- an international student who would like help settling into academic life at Flinders; or
- just feeling a little lost and need to refresh some basic academic and study skills.
The event will cover:
- How to survive and succeed at uni (what is this place and how do you succeed here, what support is available for you, strategic planning, study skills, wellbeing).
- Basics of assessments (how to plan for written assignments, using online resources efficiently, finding and reading research, strategies to make essay writing simpler).
Date: Thursday 22 August | Time: 9am -11am | Location: Education Room 2.08 (map ref E5 in the Education Building).
The session will be taught by Dr Lydia Woodyatt who applies the science of learning and wellbeing to support university student success. She is a multi-award winner for teaching excellence, Chairperson of the EPSW committee for student success, and co-designer of the award winning topic the Psychology of Surviving and Thriving.
