DR PRUE SALTER – THE STUDY SKILLS SPECIALIST

ONLINE VERSIONS OF SESSIONS

Study skills is independent of state, country, school or educational system. Sure there are some things that are specific, but we look at things like how to work more effectively at home, how to manage distractions, how to organise learning resources, how to make brain-friendly study notes, and best practice for studying for tests and exams.

TEACHERS/SCHOOLS: You may have tried to book a session or evening with Dr Salter in Sydney only to discover that she is pretty much fully booked all of the time! Or maybe you are from a school in another state or country and could not find a time when Dr Salter could travel to you. These online versions mean that your school does not have to miss out. You can purchase a group licence for a session which you can either a) show to a group of students at your school or b) email the link to groups of students/parents at your school so they can watch the videos at home. The group license gives access for a fortnight and includes links to download the handouts and the slides. Teachers can also access a staff professional development session.

PARENTS/STUDENTS: Perhaps you were away when Prue spoke at your school, or were unable to attend a parent/student evening (or as a teacher you missed the staff professional development session). Or maybe you’ve heard about Prue from other students or parents or teachers and she doesn’t speak at your school (she is in high demand and has been fully booked with her regular schools for many years now). You can now experience the sessions in the comfort of your own home over the period of a week.

A number of Prue’s sessions have been filmed. A secondary teacher professional development session, a session for senior students and an early years of high school parent/student evening. Each session has been broken down into bite sized video chunks (between 12-18 mini-videos depending on the course selected, 40-60 minutes of viewing in total) and individual licences have one week to watch all of the mini-videos for that session (school groups have a fortnight to view the videos). The videos are a mix of Prue speaking and the slides for that session and are updated regularly.
