What Happens in a Learning Skills Appointment?

A learning skills appointment at Red Deer College is a one-to-one or small group (up to 3 students) appointment with our Learning Skills Strategist. Referrals are not required. Appointments are offered Tuesday - Thursday during office hours. 

What to Expect:

  • The role of the Learning Skills Strategist is to provide professional learning strategy assistance and guidance, not to do the work for the student (e.g. the Learning Skills Strategist will not work on assignments or review test material).

How to Prepare:

  • To help prepare for your appointment, please complete the Study Skills and Habits Questionnaire and bring it with you to your appointment. 
  • Appointments booked online are scheduled for 45 minutes in the Red Deer College Library. 
  • Please be respectful and show up for your appointment on time.  Failure to do so will either reduce your appointment time or require you to reschedule.

Cancellation:

  • In order to be respectful of the academic needs of the Red Deer College's student community, please be courteous and contact the Learning Skills Strategist as soon as possible if you are unable to attend an appointment.  
  • Please cancel at least two hours in advance by following the instructions in your appointment confirmation email, or by contacting the Learning Skills strategist directly at 403.342.3136.  This will allow the appointment time to become available for another student.
  • Failure to attend a scheduled appointment without proper cancellation notice will be recorded in your file as a "no show".  After two "no shows," it will be at the discretion of the Learning Skills Strategist to allow further appointments for the remainder of the semester.
