Learning Assistance Programs offers a series of Learning Strategy workshops for the campus community to engage in ideas and resources that contribute to their overall academic success. Join us in various opportunities each quarter in learning strategies that will enrich our Seattle U community.
If you have an idea for a workshop that you believe is beneficial for our campus community, Learning Assistance Programs (LAP) offers workshops and trainings by request. Learn more on the Request a Workshop or Presentation tab.
Similarly to requesting for a specific workshop, LAP offers group workshops and trainings by request through the same process. Please see more details on the Request a Workshop or Presentation tab.
If you are faculty or staff in our Seattle U community and have the willingness to host a workshop on behalf of Learning Assistance Programs anytime during the academic year, please refer to our Learning Strategy Workshop Facilitation Interest Form. We encourage those in our campus community to also refer to their professors/colleagues in being a workshop host, as to continue the sharing of vital and valuable information throughout our university campus.
If you have any further questions regarding facilitating Learning Strategy Workshops, such as being a student interested in facilitating a workshop, please email email@example.com.

Having a mind is hard, but it can get easier with practice. Deciding to have a new mindset or attitude doesn't usually work; instead, you can learn new, science-backed mental strategies to help manage your thinking. Struggles with procrastination, self-criticism, and worrying often reflect mental habits, rather than unchangeable parts of your personality. You are capable of building more attention, mental control, motivation, and self-encouragement, and you can learn specific skills to help you make lasting mental changes. This workshop will be facilitated by clinical psychologist and psychology professor, Dr. Rachel Turow.

It is very difficult sifting through the deluge of information found online or through social media for academic or personal tasks. In this workshop, students are introduced to the Four Moves and a Habit framework. This framework focuses on essential fact-checking skills necessary to identify the credibility and authority of information. The aim of this framework is to help students very quickly evaluate claims found in a rapidly changing online information system.
With registration for Spring Quarter coming up soon, you may be wondering what courses to take, especially your UCOR courses. This workshop will help you navigate the catalog to find UCOR classes that not only fit your schedule, but your interests. Learn how you can design a more meaningful Core experience, whether that’s diving into a theme you’re passionate about across subjects as diverse as Philosophy, Mathematics, Literature, Biology, Theology, and Political Science, tailoring your Core courses to learn how disciplines from across the university contribute knowledge to your future profession, or using your Core courses as a means of exploring and discerning what that future profession might be. Join Dr. Jeff Philpott, Director of the University Core, and Dr. Hilary Hawley, UCOR faculty and Director of Core Learning and Engagement programs, in this hands-on workshop and leave with specific courses to add to your Course Plan!

Citation managers are tools that you can use to store, organize, and create citations. Research Services supports two citation managers, Zotero and RefWorks, which help you keep your sources organized and make creating citations and bibliographies easy. This workshop will focus on the basics of citation managers, the similarities and differences between the two specific tools, and the basics for getting started on each.

This workshop was EXTREMELY useful to attend. It was an information-filled, high-quality presentation. I'm planning to use this Thanksgiving break to look into scholarships and then reach out if necessary.SeattleU student
This workshop completely changed my responses to how I work with my own ADD as a student. It also catalyzed me toward doing serious research on how ADD is treated without fragmentation, and has changed how I approach the children and families I serve in my clinical counseling internship who need help with ADDSeattleU student
