Workshop Effective Reading Strategies

Student werkend aan een tafel met boeken en aantekeningen.

Are you taking a course that requires a lot of reading? Falling behind in reading chapters and articles? Or have you read everything, but it doesn't stick? Then it's a good idea to have a look at your approach. Where do you start? Do you have to read everything? And how do you ensure that the information sticks?

In this workshop, you will learn what you need to gain an overview of the subject matter. You will also be given tools to not only go through a text faster but also to better understand and remember the most important information.
