Academic Success Workshops




Synchronous Sessions

These live, 75-minute, free sessions provide students with strategies and tools, hands-on activities, and opportunities to ask questions.


In-person delivery

In-person workshops are in classroom EL 1451B (in the Riddell Library and Learning Centre). 

If you have a laptop or tablet, please bring it to the workshop. You can also request a free laptop rental from the Library.  


Online delivery

Webinars use Google Meet. You will receive an email with the link to the meeting room on the morning of the webinar. You must register before 8 am on the day of the workshop to receive the link.

Please note: online offerings are not recorded.
