iFalcon 3.0 Overview- https://youtu.be/CA7BfrUEqMg
iFalcon aims to expose first-year and returning students to the cultural codes, habits of mind, and core values of college. While highlighting a wide range of academic cultural habits from time management, to note- taking, to educational planning, iFalcon is a strategy of “transfer” that bridges personal experience with academic “habits of mind”.
The online workshops below each target one area:
- FOCUS- https://youtu.be/thOecbq0Fms: The ability to self-manage and prioritize one’s tasks. Divide and conquer the tasks. Break down larger projects and study times into easily manageable chunks or stages of time. Avoid procrastination by spreading the stages over a reasonable number of days/weeks/months.
- ORGANIZE- https://youtu.be/bLYoz7ivaWY. A systematic step-by-step approach to self-management and academic success
