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 (tutors do not edit papers; only one appointment per student per day).
- 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.
- 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.
- Learning support: Individual appointments and workshop topics include Academic Reading, Note-taking, 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/learning-support-workshops/
- English conversation sessions: a safe place for students to practice conversational English while gaining a better understanding of the skills needed to be a successful student.
Drop-in schedules vary by term for all services – please visit CSAS on the 4th floor of MacOdrum Library, or check online at carleton.ca/csas.
