We welcome all faculty and instructors to include the following description about CSAS services in course outlines.
The Centre for Student Academic Support (CSAS) offers peer-led learning assistance designed to help students achieve their goals and improve their learning both inside and outside the classroom. CSAS services include:
- Writing services: drop-in appointments for students to receive feedback about their written work at any point in the writing process. Students need to bring their written assignment in hardcopy and the assignment instructions.
- Peer assisted study sessions (PASS): weekly workshops, drop-in office hours and mock midterms/exams to help students learn course content and transferable study skills. (tutors do not edit papers; only one appointment per student per day).
- Subject coaching (PASC): drop-in subject coaching for 1000 and 2000-level courses in select subjects to help clarify introductory course content and provide study strategies
- Study skills development: Individual appointments and workshop topics include: Academic Reading, Balancing Work & School, Critical Thinking, Effective Presentations, Time Management, Memory & Concentration, Working in Groups, and more. No registration required, drop-in in person or accessible 24/7 through cuLearn, links and info here https://carleton.ca/csas/online-support/online-workshop-series/
