Workshops focus on academic strategies you need to be successful in your courses and in learning online. They are led by Learning Centre instructors, English Language tutors and peer tutors. The Tutor Tips! workshops feature panels of peer tutors sharing their own strategies. English Language workshops provide practical information and tips for improving your English reading, writing, speaking, and listening in the Douglas College courses you’re taking.
