Helping students to make the most of study time

The university experience is one full of excitement, challenges and changes. The Mount's Learning Strategist can recommend strategies students can use to become more effective learners. Services provided by the Mount's Learning Strategist are voluntary, free and confidential.

What types of services are offered?  

Students can use strategies to plan large tasks, prepare to complete assignments, balance their time, take effective notes, manage multiple reading assignments, organize information, and much more.  The Learning Strategist can make referrals and share information about other services on campus.  

Who can access these services?

The services are available to any registered Mount student, or incoming Mount students. 

What to expect during your learning strategy session

Your appointment(s) will be held in the E. Margaret Fulton Communications Centre, located on the lower level of the Mount Library. During your appointment, you'll be asked to complete a short form and discuss the purpose of your visit. Based on this information, the Learning Strategist will provide you with recommended resources and model how to incorporate specific strategies into your routine.  Students are welcome to bring a friend to the session.
