How are Studios structured?
Studios consist of a tutorial and studio session and focuses on technical academic skills. A Studio starts with a tutorial on a technical learning and research or academic management topic, such as generating data plots to present data effectively or identifying and learning tools and applications to effectively manage your time. Activities and discussions centered around these topics are interwoven into the tutorial session which is then followed by a dedicated optional studio time where students can:
- Apply activity and discussion takeaways to their own academic work
- Follow-up with Peer Learning Consultants on academic strategies
Connect with other students to share their experiences
The duration of the studio may vary depending on the topic being covered. Our studios usually average 1.5 hours. Students may attend just the tutorial or both components. Below is an example of a Grad Studio schedule.
- 10 AM - 11 AM PST: Tutorial session
- 11 AM - 11:30 AM PST: Optional Studio work session
