I wanted to remind all of you about the wonderful Academic Success Workshops put on by the Counseling Center at Bellevue College. If you are on the main campus and have an hour to spare, consider attending one of the workshops below.
||Willpower & Self-Motivation
All workshops are held in the Academic Success Center (D204-H)
I wanted to let everyone know that I will be hosting monthly virtual workshops (30 minute sessions) on a different success topic each month. Today (10/29/14) @ 2:00 pm will be the first workshop on Time Management. How to be more effective through efficiency. This workshop will be recorded so if you are interested in learning more you can access it here at a later date.
I would also like to remind all of you about the quarterly success workshops put on by the counseling center on the main Bellevue College campus. If you are local, these are great workshops to attend on campus. Here is a link to the schedule:
I was wondering how much EHRs would be recognized in dealing with Ebola in the U.S., but it looks like some are trying to fault them. Click the link below to read more:
Do you doodle? You know, making shapes, lines, pictures, words, etc. in your notebook or on a scrap piece of paper. While most of us think it might be a bad habit or something we do because we are bored, a new study has found that doodling can actually increase information retention and be a positive activity.
By no means will I encourage you to doodle in class because I will have a handful of angry instructors knocking on my office door, but I would suggest trying it while doing a listening activity of less importance. Perhaps if you have a phone conversation with a relative or friend doodle while you are on the phone with them and afterward see how well you can recall dates, times, or specific details about the conversation. If it seems to work for you, perhaps try it with slightly more important activities 🙂
Here is an upcoming event (9/18/14) that might be of interest. It is put on by the WBBA (Washington Biotechnology & Biomedical Association). See website below for specific information about the event:
Here is an interesting article I came across today. It is about doing away with college majors and instead having skill sets around which problem you want to fix in the world. I find this article particularly interesting considering I see education and careers becoming more and more specialized each day. Now that employers have their pick of the litter getting hundreds up applications for one position, they can afford to hire a person that meets their exact criteria, specific skill sets, X amount of years of experience, and specific credentials/certifications.
What do you think?
