Skills for success aims to equip students with the skills and knowledge that will help them succeed during their time in university and their life following graduation. More importantly, the programmes offered through this portfolio help individuals build their confidence and explore themselves. Skills for success are not just about today, they are about crafting a repertoire of applicable, relevant and transferable life-long skills. Make the most of your time here at Innis by learning and developing new skills, while honing your current skills.
In order to empower students to explore career options and develop self-directed career management skills, the Career Centre has embedded career support at Innis College to meet diverse student needs. Through providing career advising, career-related capacity building workshops, programs to explore careers, employer events and job postings, on-campus recruitment and resources, the Career Centre strives to help students attain renewable competencies, career clarity and confidence for a lifetime of productive and engaged citizenship.
What Motivates You?
An evidence-based workshop where you will discover how motivation influences academic success.
Get the most out of university by discovering how you think about it.
This interactive session uses research and insights from the psychology of motivation to support your academic success. Motivation concerns why you do what you do. In the context of higher education, research has shown that some forms of motivation are more strongly related to academic success than others. In this session you will complete a self-assessment that will reveal sources of your own academic motivation and learn how your motivational orientation may affect your satisfaction and success at university.
