Effective Reading Strategies (Hybrid)

Nanda Gikendan Room (Accessibility Programming Space) - 455 Spadina Ave, Suite 401 and MS Teams

Registration Deadline: Jan 17, 2024 01:30 PM

How can you make the most of readings to supplement your learning? With limited time and so many obligations, taking the time to do readings for class can be overwhelming. In this workshop, an Accessibility Services Learning Strategist will cover strategies for effective reading. This session will cover topics such as:

  • Strategies you can use before reading and during your reading
  • Note-taking tips
  • What you can do if you don't have enough time to do all the readings or feel the need to do all the readings in depth

Format: Each 60-minute learning skills workshop is led by a learning strategist. Students will learn different learning strategies related to making the reading. You will also have opportunities to ask questions about learning strategies and listen in on discussions.

Participation: Being on camera, using your mic, or participating in the chat are all optional. We welcome you to participate in a way that works for you. You are welcome to ask your own questions or simply observe these sessions to learn from ongoing discussions.

Materials: You are not required to bring any materials to these sessions, but we encourage you to come prepared with questions. Recordings of these sessions will not be provided to encourage the participation of all student attendees. Slides will be sent to attendees via email after the session is over.

Platform access information: This session will be delivered using MS Teams. Information on how to access live captions, and all other accessibility information for MS Teams, can be found on this MS Teams accessibility page.
