This presentation is typically 45min for elementary school students and 76min for high school students. Dr. Popovic’s expertise is in experiential learning and leadership, thus she requests group sizes of up to 60 students per seminar. She’s happy to deliver the seminar several times within the school day to accommodate larger student populations.
This 76 minute grade 12 presentation is inspired by the bridge-programs created to support students in their transition from Grade 8 to Grade 9. One of the major challenges that educators and parents have with their high school students is that many young people do not trust the guidance and warnings about the realities of university life upon graduation. Oftentimes, the same students who thrived in the high school classroom experience shock, panic, and anxiety once they enter a new level of competition in the post-secondary academic environment.
This presentation – by a university professor – provides students with a preparatory bridge to the post-secondary experience. Combining real examples from a decade of teaching college and university students with humour and professional honesty, this experiential presentation wakes grade 12s up to the intellectual and emotional realities in their midst.
