What’s Coming Up at the Graduate Centre for Academic Communication (GCAC)

In October, the Graduate Centre for Academic Communication (GCAC) is offering a wide range of single session workshops designed to help you improve your academic writing and speaking. No advance registration is needed for these sessions. Consult the workshop schedule on our website for times, locations, and full descriptions. Here’s a quick rundown of what’s on offer this month:

First up is our workshop series “Getting through Graduate Work.” These 90-minute sessions cover a wide range of topics: this month we’re offering workshops on effective note-taking (Oct. 16), giving oral presentations (Oct. 23) and 5 ways to improve your academic writing (Oct. 30). Another new workshop series begins in October that concerns “Peripheral Genres” of writing tasks important to grad students; topics include writing grant proposals (Oct. 15), writing cover letters for job applications (Oct. 22) and how to communicate with journal editors and reviewers (Oct. 29).

Remember as well that GCAC offers individualized one-on-one writing consultations. Get advice on your class assignment, term paper, research article or thesis chapter from our team of writing tutors. Writing Centre appointments are available for online booking throughout October.

Finally, don’t forget that registration opens Oct. 9 at 10 am for our November-December courses on academic communication. Avoid disappointment and register early as our courses always fill up quickly!
