MetadataShow full item record
The aim of this workshop series was to create a First-Year Transition Program designed to attain help Commerce students achieve first-year success. The workshops were designed based on current student success literature surrounding academic, social, and motivational issues, and the needs of the students in the Commerce program at Queen’s University. The series includes four workshops: 1. Academic success boot camp, 2. Do I have time for a life?, 3. OMG my grades have dropped? Now what?, and 4. Reboot. Each workshop is designed to be offered at a different time during the first year of the program. The topics were chosen to advise students of important information that pertains to them at the particular point in time at which the workshop is being offered. The goal is that the students will attend to and process the information in the workshops because it applies to them at that moment and will help ease their transition.
