We offer a range of academic skills workshops, and we can tailor them to focus specifically on your program needs. We can also integrate language learning tips and strategies into the workshop.

For example, you may find students are handing in reports or papers that are not well organized. Give us a copy of your assignment instructions and readings, and we can guide students through the process of creating a coherent outline and using language markers to highlight their main ideas more clearly.

These workshops can be offered to courses with both ESL and non-ESL students in them.

Workshop topics can include:

  • Time management
  • Efficient reading skills
  • Avoiding plagiarism
  • Studying and memorization tips
  • Organizing your report or paper:  Creating an outline
  • Paraphrasing and citations

We’d also be happy to discuss any other topics you may have.

If you would like us to design a workshop for your course, please contact us at least two weeks in advance.
