GPLL34 - Adapting to Online Learning

The move to online learning is very new for most of the Concordia community. As a graduate student, it’s very natural to have questions about how to organize your home learning environment in order to stay motivated, connected, and on track. Online learning is becoming increasingly more relevant and knowing how to manage these environments can be useful beyond just the classroom.

This workshop provides some practical tips and insights into the process of learning online. We start by exploring the advantages and challenges of this learning environment. We then discuss ways to organize your time and workspace, navigate Concordia’s online teaching tools, and build effective communication with classmates and professors. Finally, we discuss the resources that Concordia offers students to enhance the online learning experience.
