ITDE workshop Oct. 29 – Brain Sticky!

On Thursday, Oct. 29, join Amy Chernowsky, academic success professional, for Brain Sticky from 10:30-11:30 a.m. in SGMN 0119. Do students often complain that they can’t remember information or that there’s too much information to remember? Learn how you can help students improve their “brain sticky-ness” when it comes to learning your content area. This workshop explores how memories are formed and stored in the brain, strategies for memory improvement and resources to give your students to help them improve their memory.
