Many of the service areas participating in the GSLI work closely with faculty across campus to provide in- or out-of-class sessions, tailored to the skill development needs of a particular cohort, assignment, course, discipline, or program. These can be one-time or multiple sessions, as determined by your students’ needs. GSLI services can also combine their expertise to meet the unique learning needs of your students. Please see details about collaborative programming.
All units are happy to provide print resources or in-class information sessions about their services for your graduate students, TAs, or colleagues teaching graduate courses. Online tutorials are also available for some topics. For further information on customized sessions, please contact the staff listed below:

The services participating in the GSLI, including Learning Services, Writing Services, the Data Resource Centre, and the Library, have collaborated to develop a menu of twelve core workshops to support the development of graduate student learning writing, research and other professional skills. In collaboration with faculty, these workshops can be customized in various ways to meet the specific learning needs of your students.
At the course level, workshops can be customized to meet your learning objectives, and to address the development of a particular skill, such as academic presentation skills.
At the program level, a series of related workshops can be delivered in sequence, synchronized with course requirements and objectives, to address broader skills areas, such as writing and research, time/project management, and goalsetting.
At the department level, any combination of workshops can be integrated into research seminars or proseminar courses to supplement the learning, writing, research, data analysis and geo-spatial skills required by the discipline. Examples include developing a literature review, experimental design, and interpreting and presenting data.
The menu of core workshops includes:
