Workshops on Request
Faculty members can promote learning and help students achieve their potential by providing the resources they need to become successful, independent learners with workshops in the ASC. Contact the ASC on your campus to schedule a workshop (please provide a weeks’ notice).
Bring your students to learn about the ASC resources that are available for free in all of our different locations.

Navigating Online Programs
In this introductory presentation, students will learn how to access Online Programs and navigate the home and course page. Topics will cover how to log-in, retrieve your syllabus, submit an assignment to the Drop-box, view your grades, take a quiz, and post discussions.
In this session, students will identify skills that will help them achieve their academic goals at Daytona State College. Students will take the online LASSI (Learning and Study Strategies Inventory), an 80-item assessment of a student’s awareness of his or her learning and study skills. The LASSI is both diagnostic and prescriptive. It pro-vides you with a diagnosis of your strengths and weaknesses, compared to other college students, and it is prescriptive in that it provides feedback about areas where you may be weak and need to im-prove your knowledge, attitudes, beliefs and skills.
In this workshop students will learn how to write their essays in Word, including for-matting fonts, inserting page numbers, set spacing between paragraphs and more.
