Mindful Reading for Grads In a Digital Age: From PDF’s to Podcasts In-Person

In partnership with Academic Success, Office of Student Life

This is part 3 of a 3 part workshop series where we will use evidence-based learning strategies and mindfulness practices to help you settle and focus your mind for grad-level reading. 

During this workshop, you will continue the conversation with a learning strategist from Academic Success and Dan D'Agostino, a librarian at Robarts and a certified teacher of Compassion Cultivation Training, to discuss how to read in a digital world. Topics covered during this session will include: 

  • Investigate how different digital media have an impact on how we comprehend information 
  • Reading in a digital age has fragmented our information intake to screen reading, watching videos, and listening to podcasts; each has a different impact on the learner 
  • We will discuss strategies and mindful approaches for academic learning in each digital medium (audio, video, text)
