Academic Skills Workshops
Staff at the Academic Success Centre (ASC) are available to deliver study skills workshops to your classes. Each workshop guides students through active learning strategies needed for success at college. All workshops are designed to be student-centered and interactive, and are best delivered when modified to suit the specific needs of RRC Polytech programs. We encourage the instructors’ presence to help contextualize the content of the workshops as they relate to their courses. Please book well in advance to ensure ASC staff have time to modify workshop plans to suit your program’s current needs.
This workshop focuses on the pre-writing, writing and re-writing stages of academic and professional communications including: analyzing assignment instructions, scheduling the steps for the academic writing process, researching, organizing ideas, editing, and writing APA citations.
