(New! Open to all students interested in committing to starting “strong” this spring)
This three-week coaching workshop series allows a small group of students to meet with a professional once each week in the early portion of the semester. These coaching workshops will introduce students to key concepts that should be utilized and refined early in the semester – Goal Setting, Time Management (includes providing tools and forms to help structure the process as well as discussions about sleep, nutrition and stress management), the PLRS study system, utilizing academic resources (including professor office hours) and brain based learning concepts. What is special is the way these workshops are conducted and combined. Students will have to register for this series in advance and must commit to attending all three workshops.
The workshops will be interactive and will try to establish accountability within the “team.” As a follow-up to the workshops, each student will be scheduled to meet with an academic coach for a personal academic consultation which includes an activity log that will help determine how well students are keeping up with the plans made during the series. Students will be required to meet with the coach at least two times during the reminder of the semester. Students can register for either series on the CAS website (http://success.gatech.edu/right-start-workshop-series-spring-2017-0).
