May 2018 GCAC Workshops

Submitted on Tuesday, May 08, 2018

The Graduate Centre for Academic Communication (GCAC), offers workshops and courses for graduate students. No registration is required for GCAC workshops, and all members of the University of Toronto community are welcome to attend as many workshops as they wish. Space in the rooms 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.

Most of our workshops are organized into different series; each series includes three to five individual workshops designed for the specific audience indicated under the title of the series.
