#WorkLifeBalance

Be EmPOWERed!

Are you missing the skills you need to manage your (digital) studies right – such as effective time management and optimal learning strategies? Want to learn how to balance out your digital studies properly? Perhaps you’re looking to reorient your approach and want support on your new path. Or you’re simply interested in talking with other students and becoming familiar with digital tools for better group learning.
