Mindful Reading: Reduce Procrastination and Increase Confidence
In partnership with Academic Success, Office of Student Life
This is part 1 of a 2 part workshop series where we will use evidence-based learning strategies and mindfulness practices to help you settle and focus your mind for university-level reading.
During this first workshop, you will join a learning strategist from Academic Success and Dan D'Agostino, a librarian at Robarts and a certified teacher of Compassion Cultivation Training, to discuss and practice strategies to reduce procrastination and increase confidence when reading. Topics covered during this session will include:
- Identifying "thinking traps" related to reading
- Recognizing and understanding mind-wandering
- Building confidence as a reader
This session will include meditative practices, sharing of learning strategies, open discussion, and opportunities to apply and practice mindful reading skills.
