If you're wanting to move to the next level in your academic success, you are encouraged to take advantage of the coaching resources available. A dedicated SAF team is here to support and coach you in order to help you maximize your learning potential.
The Professional Student concept is the alignment of body, mind and action in taking ownership and being proactive in your learning experience while aspiring to be the professional you've always wanted to be. Learn and benefit from seeking out the coaching you need to be successful, acknowledging that there are many skills and competencies yet to be acquired.
You are invited to consult with Carol Treitz, the AFM Undergraduate Studies Coordinator (available between 10am to 12pm and 2pm to 4pm), or Prof. Darren Charters, the AFM Undergraduate Officer (availble by appointment), about your specific course of study. As a first point of contact, Carol and/or Darren can assist you in navigating through course requirements and offer advice on how to meet academic expectations.
Dave Logan, your Academic Skills Coach, emphasizes individualized success planning. Like athletes, Professional Students like you, can benefit from coaching to take your academic achievement beyond your current performance levels. Dave Logan is a qualified professional who can provide confidential counselling to help with personal concerns, academic success, and approaches to studies and exams.
The academic skills training is done through workshops as well as through making use of the resources posted here on the website. Questions arising from using these academic skills tools can be addressed to Lynn Graham.
