I encourage trying to implement these strategies in the PCN courses at Las Positas helped me in the first semesters of college
Angella_2
01:07:20
In the PCN 30 Student Success class we teach time management, organization, note taking and other study skills...

01:07:30
Students learn time management and other important work/college skills in Work Experience classes!
Michelle Zapata
01:08:00
We have a PCN course-- PCN 15, "College Study Skills." Unfortunately it was cancelled in fall and not offered next spring. That class incorporates all of these skills.
Jennifer Farber (she/her)
01:09:22
The Quest for Online Success course in Canvas has a Time management module, amoung other useful skills covered

01:10:07
@jrfrank javier- So glad the PCN courses were helpful!
Liz McWhorter

@Frank - Great idea
Michelle Zapata
01:10:22
@Frank, yes! Our PCN 30 that Angella mentioned incorporates these skills too. We encourage students to take these PCN 'student success' classes in their first year. Def sets students up with a foundation for college success. Esp 1st gen students.
Liz McWhorter
01:12:19
@Nezrin - That's great advice. I've done that for work / when I worked in a cubicle. Boundaries!
Nadiyah Taylor, She/Her
01:13:00
Seems like I need to take PCN 30 myself Angella
Gabriela Discua
01:18:22
@Nadiyah-its great for all those reasons above - also for growth mindset application and identifying thoughts that interfere in our confidence, and willingness to try new things. Encouraging small-large habit changes- so much personal exploration- students really appreciate it!

jrfrank javier
01:26:54
Definetly @Nadiyah, I’ve taken 3 or 4 PCN courses and highly recommend choosing to take them early on. The way my courses fell together allowed me to benefit so much. I learned similar topics, like the nervous system, in one class and then benefited from having to learn it in another class. The past 3 semesters have felt easier because of this. For example, this semester I am in BIO 50(anatomy and physiology) and in Psych 4 (Brain mind and behavior). In my psychology course with professor Ernie Jones I am learning so much about the brain and it is all being reinforced in my biology course.
Michelle Gonzales
01:26:54
INSPIRED!
Liz McWhorter
01:27:07
@Shawn - Thanks for organizing/moderating that! Fantastic!!
