What’s on(line) at GCAC in April 2021
In keeping with pandemic times, all the services provided by the School of Graduate Studies’ Graduate Centre for Academic Communication (GCAC) will continue to be offered online in April. While the mode of delivery may have changed, one thing that hasn’t is our commitment to providing support to U of T grad students for achieving their communication goals! Join us in our virtual classrooms as we offer expert guidance on how to improve your academic writing and speaking skills. Below you’ll find information on what we’ll be offering in April and beyond.
GCAC Courses in Academic Writing and Speaking
The next session of online courses start in May 2021. Registration opens on Tuesday April 20 at 10:00 a.m, so make sure to mark that date in your calendar!
Online GCAC Workshops
Pre-recorded Workshops: Check out GCAC’s pre-recorded online workshops, which are all designed to help you improve your written and oral communication skills. On our website, you’ll find descriptions of a wide range of workshops you can watch anytime – on topics such as becoming a more productive writer, working with sources in your writing, communicating scientific information visually and honing your email etiquette. You’ll also find two workshop series to guide you in the writing of research articles – one for students in the humanities and social sciences, the other for those in the physical, life and social sciences writing up experimental (IMRD) studies. You’ll find a full list of what’s available and how to register to view these sessions at this link
GCAC Online Writing Centre Throughout April, the GCAC Writing Centre will be offering online individualized one-on-one synchronous writing support through appointments booked though our website. During these sessions, you’ll meet with a writing consultant, who will work with you using audio/video, chat and a document-sharing whiteboard area. Full details on how to book an appointment can be found here.
