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.

View the Learning Café topics and descriptions to identify a session that suits your schedule. View the Fall 2019 schedule here.
