Workshops


​All members of the University of Toronto community are welcome to attend as many workshops as they wish. As a courtesy to other participants and to the instructor, we ask that you only register if you are able to participate for the entire workshop.

While our courses provide students with individual feedback and ongoing help, our workshops target specific needs in a focused way. Students might choose to attend single workshops if their schedules prevent them from taking a course, or if they seek help with a specific challenge such as giving poster presentations or writing literature reviews. As always, signing up for our listserv is the best way to find out what we are offering each week.

The Fall 2020 Online Workshop Schedule

Registration for both live and prerecorded workshops is required. Please click the title of each workshop to read the workshop description and registration details. Once you register, you will receive a link to join the live workshop at the scheduled time and/or a link to view a prerecorded workshop video. If you are not able to register online (i.e. if you are not a currently registered U of T graduate student), please contact Lauren at sgs.gcac@utoronto.ca and she will register you manually.
