We offer individual appointments, workshops and class presentations on a variety of topics to help students develop efficient, strategic study skills. To book an appointment, register for a workshop or arrange a class presentation, drop by the Learning Café (CE1340), email us or call 403-382-6952.

As a student, your behaviours and attitudes toward study can influence your success in school. But have you ever thought carefully about your study habits? You can start by assessing your study skills and habits. Be honest with yourself when selecting statements that describe you – you have nothing to lose and a lot to gain.

Workshops

View the available workshop topics and descriptions. While we are not able to present workshops on campus at the moment, Learning Café staff are still available to help you with your study skills and exam preparation.  Simply email learningcafe@lethbridgecollege.ca and we would be happy to schedule a virtual appointment with you using Skype or Teams.  Appointments last one-half hour, and you can ask questions and take notes just as you would in a regular workshop.

Find a complete listing of workshop topics and descriptions, or assess your study skills online. View the Fall 2020 schedule here.
