Learning Consultations offer opportunities for undergraduate, graduate, and professional students to build and strengthen their study skills and strategies as they engage with Penn coursework and a variety of academic projects. Our learning specialists support students through individual consultations and group workshops that often address time/project management, organization, academic reading, research and writing, problem-solving, and exam preparation.
Students can schedule 50-minute virtual meetings to discuss their study strategies and approaches to a variety of academic assignments and assessments. Please click on MyWeingartenCenter below to access our online scheduling system and schedule a Learning Consultation Appointment. Students will receive an appointment confirmation email with the Zoom meeting link.

Students are limited to scheduling one Learning Consultation appointment per week. If an additional appointment is needed in that week, we ask that students speak with their learning specialist.
Appointments are generally available Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. ET, but additional times may be available in MyWeingartenCenter depending on the availability of our learning specialists.
Learning Strategies Workshops
As students return to in-person learning, we will offer a variety of in-person and virtual learning strategies workshops this fall. Our signature workshop series for Fall 2021 will include Mastering the Ivy League for undergraduates, Academics Plus, which addresses language, culture, and resources for international students and students from linguistically diverse backgrounds, and Strategies for Success in Graduate Studies designed for graduate and professional students as they adapt to online learning (Penn students can access recordings of those sessions on the Graduate Student Center’s website).
We also encourage students to explore materials related to these workshop topics in our Resources for Online Learning and to check out this video podcast on Effective Strategies for Learning and Productivity developed in collaboration with student leaders in the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE).
Customized Virtual Workshops
Faculty members, department/program staff, and student organizations can request customized virtual workshops on topics that may include time management, academic reading, note-taking, and exam preparation by completing our Workshop Request Form.
