Faculty

In addition to providing direct service to undergraduate and graduate students, Learning Skills Specialists are available to consult with all Teaching Faculty, from Course Instructors to TA’s, concerning Learning Skills-related issues.

Time and resources permitting, we can visit individual classes during regular daytime working hours from Monday to Friday, to deliver any of our existing 1-hour workshops. If you are interested in booking a workshop, on a limited first-come, first-served basis during normal weekday working hours, we may be able to send a Learning Skills representative to individual classes or other campus events to provide sessions on academic skills. To request a booking, please complete the following form: https://ssc.apps01.yorku.ca/machform/view.php?id=43189. For further inquiries, email us at lsp@yorku.ca or call us at 416-736-5144. Please note that we require at least 4 weeks advance notice for classroom bookings. Unfortunately, due to staffing limitations, we are not able to provide evening or weekend service.

We also welcome opportunities to work with Teaching Faculty, to help develop strategies to embed and scaffold academic literacies and learning skills into the course design.

Learning Skills Specialists can also work with individual Faculty members, groups, or departments, to custom-design Learning Skills materials or workshops to fit the Learning Skills requirements of your specific discipline or topic area, time and resources permitting . Please contact us and let us know how we can help!
