Recording of previous Collaborative Learning Center (CLC) workshops

For students who can’t fit our academic success skills workshops into their schedules, video recordings of our more popular workshops are available for students to view at their leisure. Students can always follow up with CLC Undergraduate Educators - advanced students in the social and natural sciences with training in how learning works - to discuss the learning strategies and study techniques addressed in the videos.
