  • Are you finding it difficult to stay engaged with online learning?
  • Do you encounter roadblocks when starting assignments or trying to finish them?

Join the AccessAbility Make Time Network, a study and accountability group.  Two drop-in sessions offered per week, Mondays and Fridays.  Join with peers who share common goals and can support each other in achieving them.  This peer group will be facilitated by a Disability Consultant, who will share learning tips and strategies each week.  It is an action-orientated study or work time, designed to assist you with staying on task, and provide a way for you to make progress on outstanding work and study objectives.
