Mindful Reading: Reduce Procrastination and Increase Confidence

Jul 7, 2022 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM

Registration Deadline: Jul 7, 2022 12:36 PM

This is part 1 of a 3 part workshop series where we will use evidence-based learning strategies and mindfulness practices to help you settle and focus your mind for grad-level reading. During this first workshop, you will join a Learning Strategist from Academic Success and Dan D'Agostino, a Librarian at Robarts and a certified teacher of Compassion Cultivation Training, to discuss and practice strategies to reduce procrastination and increase confidence when reading.

Topics covered during this session will include:

  • Identifying "thinking traps" related to reading
  • Recognizing and understanding mind-wandering
  • Building confidence as a reader
This session will include meditative practices, sharing of learning strategies, open discussion, and opportunities to apply and practice mindful reading skills
