Resources

SASS staff often come across writing and learning resources that are likely to be of interest to faculty and TAs, and we post these resources on this page. We are particularly interested in content related to aspects of academic writing and other academic skill development, but we consider a variety of topics. If you are a faculty member, a post-doc, or a TA and you’ve found a resource that you think might suit this page, we invite you to send it with a brief explanation to academic.success@queensu.ca.

Academic writing

  • Consider this very practical set of suggestions from the University of Melbourne for graduate students who are trying to meet the requirement of “originality” in their work; these suggestions are also helpful for those struggling with academic imposter syndrome, those having difficulty seeing the value of their work or identifying the heart of a thesis, and those who don’t feel clear about academic expectations.
