Outreach Workshops
on Learning Skills (OWLS)

Outreach Workshops on Learning Skills (OWLS) are designed to help students develop as self-confident and efficient learners by introducing new study skills and strategies they can apply to their study routine.

We have two options for these workshop events:

  • We come to your class or meeting, and facilitate an interactive and engaging presentation about the Academic Skills topic of your choice. Just put in a request!
  • We host 5-10 all-campus events each semester, which any UNCG student is welcome to attend. The all-campus schedule is available at go.uncg.edu/aac_owls


What can attendees expect?

During our sessions, we incorporate a variety of learning modalities and facilitation strategies, such as discussions, activities, and group work. Our goal is to be engaging, helpful and motivating to attendees!

All our sessions have specific learning goals and a short pre/post assessment to determine if we're meeting our objectives.

Typically each session is about 50 minutes long, though longer and shorter workshops can be arranged by request.

Before requesting a workshop, please read the requirements:

  • Workshops should only be requested for UNCG students (courses and/or student groups).
  • We ask for two weeks' notice on all standard topics, and at least three weeks for special topic requests.
  • The requestor must be reasonably assured that 10 or more students will attend the requested event.
  • OWLS can be requested for Fall, Spring, or Summer semesters, but not during the Final Exam periods.
  • Weekend workshops are only facilitated when presenters are available.

We reserve the right to cancel any workshop request that does not meet these requirements.

Additionally, for workshops that are facilitated in-person, we ask the requestor to ensure that a teaching station or projector is available for our use in the space.
