Profs-in-Commons: Reaching out to Professors

Have you ever wanted to ask your prof a personal question, or have had something to share about a life circumstance that affected your learning- from having a doctor’s appointment, to handling a complex personal issue? We know these conversations can be difficult, and we’re here to help! In this session, meet with Dr. Robyn Pitman from the Department of Sociology to talk about when, and why, you should disclose something in your life to a professor in order to get the support you need.

Time Management when Learning Online

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.
