Mindful Reading: Increase Confidence and Reduce Procrastination

Oct 27, 2022 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM

Registration Deadline: Oct 27, 2022 11:08 AM

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, create an intentional approach to how you navigate text, and develop strategies for deep reading. During this first workshop, you will join Benjamin Pottruff, 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 increase confidence and reduce procrastination when reading.

Topics covered during this session will include:

  • Recognizing and understanding mind-wandering
  • Identifying "thinking traps" related to reading
  • 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
