Book a virtual consultation for help with writing or study strategies
Virtual consultations are available to all currently enrolled SFU students. Students can book Virtual Consultations in the same way as previous in-person consultations, using WCOnline. Virtual Consultations are booked and hosted through WCO.
Watch this short video to learn some key tips for making the most of your virtual consultations:
Get free, fast, and friendly feedback from WriteAway
Undergraduate students can submit their writing assignments to Write Away for free, fast, and friendly feedback. Qualified tutors from 17 post-secondary institutions in BC and Alberta will review student submissions and provide suggestions on how students can improve their writing skills.
Attend an online workshop
When participants consent, we are recording the webinars for later viewing, and are posting them on our Webinar recordings page as they become available.
Get a handout, view a video, and see more online resources
We offer a wide range of electronic resources (handouts, videos, etc.) on many aspects of writing, English language learning, and learning strategies. From our homepage, you can browse resources for Writing, Learning and Studying, or English as an Additional Language. Resources of particular interest during this time include:
- Success Strategies for Online Courses
- Time and Self Management (including resources on concentration, focus, and motivation)
- Exam preparation
The SLC Media Collection includes a number of short (2-15 minutes) videos that students can watch or instructors can show in their "live" classes or post on Canvas.
Join an online group
Let's Talk! is a weekly workshop facilitated by volunteer peer educators. The goals are to provide an opportunity for students to practice their spoken English and listening skills in a friendly group setting. Although designed with multilingual students in mind, Let's Talk! is open to all SFU students, both undergraduate and graduate. Interested faculty, including visiting professors, are also most welcome.
