Academic Skills Support

Academic Skills Workshops

Academic skills workshops are offered at various times on weekdays and Saturdays throughout the Fall and Winter sessions in the Writing Plus series. These workshops are designed to help you acquire and polish the skills you need to make your university experience a successful one. They can help you get the most out of your lectures and course readings, strengthen your writing skills, improve your performance on tests and examinations, and develop skills which will transfer to the marketplace.

Writing Plus

Tutors from Woodsworth’s Academic Writing Centre conduct many of the workshops; the rest are given by tutors from the other St. George Campus College Writing Centres, from the Counselling and Learning Skills office, and from the U of T Library. For detailed information on workshop topics, dates, times, and locations, visit the main Writing Plus site.
