Facilitating and Guiding Students' Learning ...

Get Consultation and Feedback!

While you plan and manage your progress with the Assignment #1 paper, why not take advantage of Reference Services at the Dafoe Library, and the Writing Tutors Program from the Learning Assistance Centre. One of the important incregidents for developing ourselves as good researchers/writers is having the environment in which you can get good and relevant feedback.  Here are two learning support services that are available at the University and part of what you are paying for in your higher education:

Book Your Appointment with Writing Tutor:

"The Writing Tutor Program is an excellent free resource for students. The program is run by volunteer and paid tutors who are all students themselves. Tutors are available to meet with students one-to-one for help with papers and essays. The sessions usually last about 20-30 minutes, and tutors can assist students with a paper's organization, focus, thesis statement, coherence, and clarity, among other concerns. 

Students are welcome to meet with tutors at any point of the writing process. Rather than proofreading or editing papers, tutors offer feedback to help students improve their writing skills. A student should not expect the whole paper to be looked at and "corrected" as the emphasis of the program is on helping students become better writers. Towards this end, tutors assist writers in finding areas which require improvement and then learning the ways to make those improvements."

Please refer to the Learning Assistance Centre web site for more information.
