“Students are being asked to make a sudden change in the way they take their classes, and that can be a stressful situation. At SASS, we want Queen’s students to know that we are still here for them, and that we have resources available that might make this big adjustment to remote learning a little easier.”

Supporting academic success from a distance

As students across Ontario are adapting and adjusting to remote learning, Ontario’s universities are offering a range of resources to ensure they are fully supported as they continue their studies.

At Queen’s University, Student Academic Success Services (SASS), a unit of Student Affairs, is providing help to students through online resources and one-on-one writing and academic skills appointments.

The various initiatives offered by SASS includes a guide for distance students, an online one-on-one consultation program for personalized assistance with writing and academic skills, as well as, online dissertation and presentation appointments for graduate students.

“As all Queen’s courses quickly transition to remote learning for the end of the term, instructors will likely be using a wide variety of methods to finish teaching their courses. But no matter what new form classes will take, SASS has resources for students that will help them finish the semester with confidence,” says Susan Korba, director of SASS.
