Learning Strategies with Steve Schauz

Friday, March 9, 2018

Tell us a little about yourself and your interest in Learning Strategies and Time Management coaching.

I am an Area Director in Residential Life, and I work specifically with Goodhue and Evans Halls and the GSC Interest Houses.  Prior to coming to Carleton, I earned an MS in College Student Personnel from Western Illinois University; I attended Carroll University – a small liberal arts college in Wisconsin – where I graduated with a BA in English.  When I began my professional search, I knew that I wanted to return to my liberal arts roots, so I am very happy to be an environment that values this curriculum.

With this question, I could just tell you about my job, but I always like to give more than that, too.  I am a runner; I ran a half-marathon about two years ago, and I have a personal goal to run another sometime in 2018.  I am a huge music fan and pending concerts include: Valerie June, Lorde, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lord Huron. Oh! And I have a cat named Cora, who is perfect and my feline sidekick…or more accurately, I am lucky simply to be in her majesty the Queen’s court.

My role as the Learning Strategies and Time Management Coach is part of a divisional project assignment that all current Area Directors hold.  We each work in different areas on campus. I specifically wanted to work in the Academic Support Center because I have had a lot of experience with the learning process.  Most of my formal education has been based in student learning and development; furthermore, during my senior year of college, I had the opportunity to serve as an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant for a Postcolonial Literature course.  Within that role, I did a lot of learning strategies coaching and research. I wanted to continue supporting students with their academic and personal development within this role, as well as to further my own knowledge about best practices.

How do students request your services?

There are several avenues students can take to request my support.  The best way to do this is to complete the Request an Academic Skills Coach form online on the Academic Support Center website.  It asks some basic questions about what students are hoping to learn as well as for their availability. Once I receive this form, I reach out to set an appointment time during my Office Hours.

I also welcome walk-in’s when I am available!  Priority goes to anyone who has previously made an appointment, but if I am free, I will help someone on the spot!

What does the coaching process look like?

This really depends on the skills an individual experience is hoping to learn or develop.  I really gauge what an individual needs and what support looks like based on those needs to determine what their individual process looks like.  A magician never reveals their secrets, but I will say that as I am meeting with a student and giving advice, I am simultaneously processing and calculating about what will best help this student.  Sometimes, that looks like giving some homework to try out, and then setting up and appointment for diving in further. Sometimes, that looks like saying, “Cool, I think you’ve got this; go forth, and I’ll be here if you need me again.”  I tailor every process to the needs of the individual. Which means everyone who comes in to see me can be prepared for a lot of questions…

Those questions help me get a better picture, a deeper context, for what those needs might be.  And then I process and calculate as I mentioned before. There: you have seen the man behind the curtain a bit more!

What information would you like students, faculty, and staff to know about the ASC and your services?

Students: you can and should come see me in general, even if you are not currently “struggling.”  The learning process is ever evolving and that means what has worked for you before may not work as well in the future.  I focus on giving you the skills to become an active agent in your own learning process, and we can work on those skills at any and all times.  Not just when you feel like something isn’t working.

Faculty: I am happy to visit your classes to discuss learning strategies, the learning process, or anything else that might be helpful for your students.  Feel free to contact me. Additionally, please feel free to refer folks who are needing support with general learning processes to me. If it is more subject specific, refer folks to tutors, writing center, math center, etc.

Staff: Similarly to faculty, please feel free to refer folks to me.  Furthermore, my background in Student Affairs is based in student learning and development.  So if you would like to discuss how learning impacts our role as staff members, I am also open to those dialogues.  I love to learn together!

    Hi all, I just wanted to say that I had an absolutely fantastic experience with this mobile welding and fabrication service.  The welders attended at my shop in Vancouver promptly and fabricated new aluminum tanks and welded existing stainless steel piping that was leaking. They came up with a couple of great ideas and they modified the pipes and produced even better than expected fabrication. The employees at this company are very down to earth,  likeable, professional, respectful, personable and very efficient.  I would highly recommend Vancouver mobile welding to anyone that requires the services of an on site welding or fabrication service.
