SCIENCE SCHEMES NEWSLETTER
Volume 16, Number 8
SUMMER 2021 SEMESTER
Focus: Student Learning Commons Website
THIS IS YOUR ADVISOR
Melissa Tamer advises all Surrey campus Science students, General Science Double Minor Program students, Science students over 60 units without a major, and students wanting to transfer into Science from other SFU faculties.
Student Learning Commons
If you have been reading these newsletters all year, first of all... THANK YOU! As you may have noticed I get a lot of my resources from the Student Learning Commons website.
If your first year did not go as planned and you have decided to take summer semester off to regroup that's great! Perhaps you can take a few days over the summer to join workshops on this website for whatever facet you feel like may help you.
There are also lots of articles to read about writing, learning and studying as well as past workshops and webinars that have been recorded for your convenience.
In general the Learning and Studying resources I find are the most useful as they teach useful note taking techniques, exam preparation and other useful time and self management information.
Even as a seasoned student or especially as a first year student these resources are useful to see if there is a more efficient way than the way you are currently studying or if there is anything that you can implement that will streamline and help you study.
One thing to note is that the Study Hall @ Home, link found below under Ongoing Events. It is a great thing to take advantage of this summer if you are taking classes as it is a great time to get resources and help as well as a nice block of time forcing you to study.
Good luck in your future studies!
