Balancing Learning and Living at Home | Wednesday, July 15 | 2:00-3:00pm

We’ll consider how to make space for your personal wellbeing when working and studying from home. Drawing from advice and experiences of CLC Assistants, you will develop approaches to working remotely that keep your wellbeing in mind and consider how your unique context might impact your work-life balance. You’ll leave with resources to support your success.

Group Presentations Online | Wednesday, July 22 | 2:00-3:00pm

As students learning and connecting online, there is a lot to consider—especially when working with others. You will leave this workshop with knowledge on how to prepare and give effective group presentations online, from working with each other to engaging a class with technology.

Time Management when Learning Online | Wednesday, July 29 | 2:00-3:00pm

With this rapid transition to learning online, some of us are taking classes that have both asynchronous (on our own time) and synchronous (“live”) learning elements. In this session you will learn how to separate your “work space” from your “home space” when you can’t physically come and go from class. You will also get tips on time management as a remote learner to set you up for success when taking classes online.

Online Communication Skills | Wednesday, August 5 | 2:00-3:00pm

As online learners, we constantly communicate with others using a variety of platforms. Which platforms are best suited to different types of communication? How might you engage effectively online with a professor, a classmate, or a colleague? This session helps you build your communication confidence by considering best practices and recommendations when communicating online, using a variety of methods- from email, to instant messaging, to video chat.
