Residence Presentation (Dons only!)

NOTE: each ResPres runs approximately 50 minutes-ish.

Not sure which one you want? See here for a description of each workshop.

The program coordinator, Ian, will contact you after you submit your form to confirm a date and time and discuss anything else you’ll need for your program. The PLAs/PWAs will contact you close to the scheduled date to discuss logistics. On the day, please greet them when they arrive and stay for the whole session.

If you need to cancel or reschedule the session, please email Ian as soon as possible.


Our volunteers always appreciate the effort you put in to make a program well-attended and successful. Please stay with your residents during the presentation, so that you can let us know how things went – we always appreciate constructive feedback so that we can make our presentations even better in the future.

TA training

Academic integrity

This workshop provides students with detailed information about how to show the quality of their academic integrity. In this workshop, students learn not only how, but why we avoid plagiarism. Students will learn the practices that indicate skilled academic integrity: paraphrasing, quoting, knowing when and what to cite, and much more. The workshop gives students all they need to know (with suggestions for further learning) in order to submit their work with confidence in their own academic integrity.


Thank you for your interest in having SASS provide a workshop. Please verify your entry and a representative will contact you to arrange further details.
