M.E, That’s exactly the aim.
If you collect intakes or evaluations for tutoring or coaching from students, you can look for commonly occurring phrases, and, of course, co-create titles with tutors, coaches, etc. to ensure the language resonates.
On our workshop evaluation forms, the first couple questions are actually intake questions asking what issues students are experiencing and what they want to learn/be able to do.
So, with each evaluation we collect, we also get a sense of how students are experiencing the challenge in their own language. We also ask a question on the evaluation specifically to get responses to use in our publicity.
We ask, namely, “What would you tell another Princeton student about this workshop?”

Best,
Nic

​Nic, That is such a clever idea--echo the student's thoughts! Then when they recognize them on your flyers and social posts, they are going to at least give them a look. You just can't do a stand alone workshop titled "Study Skills." If the title is catchy or resonates with the student, it can become an entrenched part of campus culture. I named our study skills workshop "Glue For Your Brain" (this was long before the book "Make It Stick) and to my surprise people still ask for that workshop even though I have moved to other duties and no longer offer that service. The name most certainly matters.

One thing we’ve done for titles of workshops (not the workshop series) is use phrases student’s might utter or think.
Here are some examples:
“What should I do the first week of classes?”: Starting the Semester Strong
Thriving at Princeton: Mapping Your Semester for Balance & Success
Using Principedia to Choose & Succeed in Your Courses
"How does my professor expect me to do all this reading?": Efficient Reading Strategies for Princeton Courses
So Much to Learn, So Little Time: Deciding What to Study & How
"Why do I keep putting things off?": Understanding & Overcoming Procrastination
Time Management for Happiness & Success
Feel Confident for Midterms: Test Prep & Learning Strategies
"That Looked Nothing Like the Homework": How Princeton Midterms are Different
Make the most of the second half of the semester: Understanding & Overcoming Procrastination
What To Do When Lectures Aren’t Making Sense
Balancing Work & Play During Winter Break
"How will I get it all done?" Planning for Dean’s Date & Finals

Best,
Nic

Subject: Workshop Series Title

Hello,

I am developing a new workshop series to present to our students during the Spring 2020 semester, but I cannot think of a creative, bring the students in, title, and I am looking for suggestions. I thought maybe the creative minds of this group could help me out.
The majority of this particular workshop series is geared toward providing students with tips and ideas for college success. My other workshop series focuses on reading strategies and study skills.

The titles of the workshops will tentatively include;

"Making the Most of Your Semester"
"Navigating Canvas, Email, and TJC's Website"
"Stress Management Tips and Tricks"
"PowerPoint & Google Slides Tips"
"Word & Docs Tips"
"Adaptive Thinking & Inquiry"
"Using 'Soft Skills' for College Success & Beyond"
"Test Taking Tips"
"TSI Reading & Writing"

Any ideas and suggestions for a catchy title for the series would be greatly welcomed!

Thank you for your time,







Tiffany Thompson, M.A.
