 Fall 2016 Workshop Series

For Fall 2016 we are offering the following events for ALL WKU students.

This is a sneak peek of some of our offerings. Dates coming soon.

   
 

 College Reading Success Forum:  Are you feeling overwhelmed with the amount of reading assigned each week?  Are you unsure about how to begin studying?  Come to the forum and ask us how we can help.  Bring your questions, syllabi, and textbooks.  This is your OPPORTUNITY!!

Introduce Book Club (Book will be provided)

 

Time Management:  You know that feeling when a professor asks you to hand in your assignment and you just don’t have it?  That sudden burst of panic when everyone else is turning in their papers and you just sit there?  In this session, learn some strategies to keep yourself organized.

 

 APA:  Did you only learn MLA in high school and are now facing a class that requires APA research?  In this session, you will learn the quick basics of writing and reading research, APA citations, and formatting a reference page.  Bring your APA writing questions and we will give you guidance on how to best do APA.

 

 

 Preventing Plagiarism:  You know your are aren't going to cheat, but plagiarism can happen to any student who is not 100% prepared and knowledgeable about what plagiarism is.  This is especially relevant for students who are not well-versed in the expected standards of plagiarism for American universities.

 

 Improve your Reading Speed:  Learn the techniques of speed reading.  The average student who participates in this session improves their speed by 60 words per minute, and your time can increase even more with some of the practice strategies that you’ll learn.

 

 Preparing for Finals: Need to get organized to ace those finals? Let us help you make sense of the chaos. BRING YOUR FINALS SCHEDULE with you.

A ticket will be issued at each session for the grand prize drawing at the final session.  Light refreshments will be served.

Sessions Wednesday 12:45-1:15 p.m. at the WKU Center for Literacy located in Gary Ransdell Hall 2066.
