Research Papers

Academic writing can be a challenge for both new and experienced students. Students often do not know where to begin an assignment, how to properly edit their work, or how to meet formatting requirements. These are writing roadblocks which can lead to a diminished quality of work. The Research Papers tutorial aims to help students learn the writing process, including proper referencing, in-text citations, and formatting.

This resource is available on an ongoing basis as part of our self-directed learning supports.

Tip of the Day

How can I apply the skills I’ve learned to the work environment?

Entering the workforce for your new job or career is an intimidating life-stage. More so, many of us take this step at different points in our lives.

Many students have gone through grade school with a group of peers roughly the same age and from the same community. Some of you may have just finished high-school and others may have taken some time off in between. Or maybe you have come to Canada seeking a new life in a different country, and a new challenging career to go with it. Or maybe you’re looking to change careers and challenge yourself. Nevertheless, we have all developed skills along the way to prepare us for life, education, and the workforce. Our first step is to recognize this!

Moreover, as we have been moving into online learning, learning new technologies like Webex and MS Teams, structuring our own daily schedules, or being supportive of friends and classmates, there is an opportunity to practice these skills also in your work environments.
