Student Learning Commons: Types of consultations available to students

 

Welcome back! Student Learning Commons services are here for you -- both in-person and online.

 

The Student Learning Commons offers free one-on-one consultations at Burnaby, Surrey, and Vancouver to SFU students taking credit courses.

Starting Fall 2021, SLC consultations will be available both on-campus and virtually, on the WCO platform. Both on-campus and virtual consultations are one-on-one and peer-to-peer with a focus on empowering students' confidence in their own academic work. 

Learning consultations

Enhance strategies such as time management, exam preparation, note-taking, and presentation skills.

Writing consultations

Develop and improve strategies and skills for more effective academic writing, including cover letters and résumés for Co-op or other positions related to your academic program.

For assistance with job-related cover letters and résumés, consult SFU Career Services or the Career Management Centre.

Note: SLC staff and peer educators do not proofread or edit your work but do help you develop your own effective proofreading and editing strategies.

French / français

Develop and improve writing abilities in French. When available, SLC consultants who are fluent in French can help students to internalize concepts and strategies for academic writing in French, as well as provide effective feedback and additional writing resources.

Développer et améliorer les compétences rédactionnelles en français des étudiants. Des conseillers francophones sont disponibles pour aider les étudiants à intégrer un certain nombre de concepts et de stratégies d’écriture en lien avec la rédaction de leurs travaux universitaires en français. Les étudiants bénéficient d’un retour personnalisé sur le travail fourni et sont orientés vers des ressources appropriées lorsque cela s’avère necessaire.
