Graduate Centre for Academic Communication (GCAC) February 2018 Workshops

Submitted on Tuesday, January 30, 2018

The Graduate Centre for Academic Communication (GCAC) offers workshops and courses for graduate students.

​These free workshops are presented by the School of Graduate Studies’ Graduate Centre for Academic Communication and require no prior registration to attend. Space is limited, so arrive on time to be sure of a seat. As a courtesy to other participants and to the instructor, we ask that you attend only if you are able to stay for the entire workshop.

While courses provide students with individual feedback and ongoing help, the workshops target specific needs in a focused way. Students might choose to attend single workshops if their schedules prevent them from taking a course, or if they seek help with a specific challenge such as giving poster presentations or writing literature reviews.

Monday February 5: Strategies for Making Requests in Academic Settings
Wednesday February 7: Clear Thinking, Clear Writing: Communicating Clearly to Your Target Audience(s)

Monday February 12:
Class Participation: Why, What, and How

Monday February 26: Thinking about Citation and Sources
Tuesday February 27: Writing Literature Reviews in the Sciences
Wednesday February 28: Reading Efficiently and Effectively
