What is a study retreat?
(Join here) Link opens at 8:45am
Basicly it is a social opportunity to work online, but alone. Participants will focus on their own study assignments. Studying is carried out in 25 min study sessions based on pomodoro technique. There are some short breaks between the study episodes. Breaks includes some relaxation, stretching or refreshing exercises. In the middle of the day we will take a longer lunch break. NOTE! You don’t have to open microphone or video connection during this retreat.
Retreat is guided by LUC curator services curators Maria, Mikko, Paula or Maija.
