LSBU takes a look at how students can overcome adversity and avoid being overwhelmed with their studies and personal difficulties with this intriguing lecture

Mitchell Colver PhD, from Utah State University, is visiting London South Bank University and will deliver a session on:

Welcoming Adversity in Measure: Reframing student motivation for University success.

While many students expect university to be challenging, too many view academic rigour as an inconvenience, arbitrarily doled out by unsympathetic faculty. Without the proper lenses of interpretation, students may succumb to being overwhelmed by this adversity, rather than embracing it as an opportunity for growth. This session will invite attendees to reexamine the central tenets of the university tradition, with a toolkit of how to support students through academic and personal difficulties.
