Get your spring semester off to a great start! The Altshuler Learning Enhancement Center (A-LEC) has partnered with OIT to offer student workshops that can help you make the best of your spring. Located in the Loyd All-Sports Center, the A-LEC is a great place to support your studies through your time at SMU.

Along with the A-LEC’s excellent classes on time management, note taking, research, and more; OIT will be presenting workshops and classes that cover digital note taking, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Lynda.com.

Most of A-LEC’s workshops take place in the late afternoon and early evening, so you don’t have to juggle them with your regular class schedule. The A-LEC also offers appointments with learning specialists and tutors to ensure that every student is the best that they can be. For more info on workshops and appointments, give the A-LEC a call at 214-768-3648, drop them a line at alec@smu.edu, or visit the A-LEC website.

We would love to see you at one of our presentations! Advanced registration is not required. Here is a summary of OIT’s student workshops coming up at the A-LEC:
