Academic Coaching.

 

Academic Coaching

The Academic Coaching program at the Center for Academic Excellence (CAE) focuses on individual student needs to develop independent student success at no additional cost.

Academic coaching provides assistance outside of content areas for students in need of organizational and study skills based assistance.  Coaching helps students develop independent methods for success. Coaches’ assistance includes developing academic plans or working in line with CAE support services like the University Writing Center to help you with planning out your research paper timeline.

Workshops

All Academic Coaching Workshops are listed on WCOnline, on our Individual Tutoring schedule. They are one-hour, free and open to all Drew students. Students do not have to make an appointment or RSVP to attend these workshops. Times of sessions are listed on the Individual Schedule by searching “Study Skills” in the Limit To drop-down menu.

All workshops are designed to help students develop more effective organizational and study skills. Strategies, tools, and techniques for managing time, stress, and procrastination, as well as maintaining motivation and a growth mindset, will be discussed. All Drew students, faculty, staff, and alumni are welcome to attend these workshops. 

Making Learning Relevant Workshop

Learning happens best when we are interested in what we learn and feel it has relevance to our life goals. With Fall registration coming up soon, it is an ideal time to think about what you want to learn based on your interests and past experiences. This workshop may be especially helpful if you are feeling a lack of motivation or if you are trying to decide on a major. Join the CAE over zoom on March 23rd from 6:30 to 7:30 as we host a workshop to help you discover what makes learning relevant for you.

When: Tuesday, March 23rd from 6:30 to 7:30
