What I Wish I Knew Going into First Year: The transition between learning environments is often accompanied by the realization that our existing study strategies are not always effective in the new setting. Yet, your lifetime of learning is built upon successfully transplanting your learning process to new environment. In this interactive workshop facilitated by Daniels Faculty Learning Strategist Benjamin Pottruff, we will investigate the core academic skills that you will practice in your first term courses. Using the collective hive-mind of your orientation leaders and your pervious learning experiences, we will bring awareness to the best practices that will support you in reaching your academic goals!
After lunch, we will take the subway (tickets are provided) down to the dock and take the ferry to Centre Island - one of Toronto's many islands! Be sure to bring comfortable clothes for the beach and prepare to get wet (if you are comfortable doing so), play some sports, and have fun!
