Hi Amy,

1. Do a walk-through visit of campus services that are essential to success: Health Services, Dean of Students, Campus Access Services for special needs students, advising center, Registrar's Office, Bursar's Office, Student Activities, and wherever students should go for tutoring if it's not the same spot they meeting during the workshop.

2. I'm a big fan of how to take notes for various types of classes since it differs significantly between a math class and an English class, for example.

3. Time management that includes making a weekly personal chart

4. Appropriate vs. inappropriate campus conduct and consequences

5. A visit from offices that handle internships and externships and, if you offer it, study abroad options

6. Academic integrity presented by somebody outside of the English Department so that the students receive the message that this is a multidisciplinary concern, ideally with a short pitch at the end from a librarian and a Writing Center tutor on how students with questions and concerns can visit with them

My company can help you flesh out workshops on any of these topics or others should you wish.

Happy transfer period!

Sincerely,
Debbie Malewicki, M.A.

Hello All,

Greetings from Westchester County, New York.

Hope that all of you are warm as, in the words of Ned Stark, “winter is coming”. 


The Learning Assistance Center @ Pace offers academic skills workshops for various groups of students, some course content focused, some skills based.  In the spring semester 2019, we anticipate about fifty new transfer students, and we would like to offer a workshop series addressing specific academic needs of transfer students. 

Can anyone offer suggestions of topics that help transfers transition to the school community?


Thank you for sharing your insight.

   Best,

  Amy
