Summertime: Procrastination

Our success approach is to begin this series on starting success habits by focusing on a major one: procrastination. When thinking about a common that needs to be improved, procrastination is the first to come to mind and one of the most popular challenges among students. This episode features our first department chair: Dr. Larry Ferguson. As the chair for Secondary Education and School Leadership in the School of Education, Dr. Ferguson has wonderful advice for both faculty and students concerning how to keep students motivated and focused. Tune in to hear stellar advice for your journey of self improvement through Dr. Ferguson’s captivating narrative.

CORRECTION: Dr. Ferguson is the second faculty member from the School of Education to be featured on this podcast. Dr. Burwell ("Meet Learning Communities") is based in the department of Exercise Science in the School of Education.
