The academic excellence workshops are part of the MESA Program at COD and we would like to see all MESA students participating in them whenever possible. We also invite non-MESA students to attend. The goal of these workshops is to help you succeed in your classes.
The idea of the workshops is to create learning teams and develop peer learning. The leader of the workshop is a facilitator, not an instructor. A facilitator is a person who assists in the learning and decision making process. Most work during the workshops will be done in small groups so it is very important to show up and as many workshops as possible.
A brief discussion from the facilitator on the material to be covered. Group work on problems assigned by the facilitator. Last part of workshop can be used to look at assigned homework.
