Students with Appointments at the RGASC

Health Notice: COVID-19 and Your Upcoming Appointment

Effective Tuesday, March 17, the RGASC has moved entirely online due to the COVID-19 virus. We are still “open,” responding to questions, and providing academic support to students, but doing so online only.

All in-person support and programming has been either cancelled or moved online. If you are a student and have already booked an appointment on WCONLINE, that appointment has been shifted online. Log in to WCONLINE for details on how to access and use this appointment.

If you are a student, staff member, or faculty member looking for support, email academicskills.utm@utoronto.ca or contact Cliona Kelly (Centre Coordinator) at cliona.kelly@utoronto.ca or Tyler Evans-Tokaryk (RGASC Director) at tyler.tokaryk@utoronto.ca. We will respond to your inquiries as quickly as possible.

Thank you for your understanding during these extraordinary times, and stay safe.

Please see details below with respect to your appointment at the RGASC:

FACE-to-FACE Appointments

We have adjusted your face-to-face appointments in WCONLINE to allow you to upload your assignment for feedback.  To upload your assignment instructions and your own written work for feedback, log-in to WCONLINE, select your appointment, and click on the edit tab at the bottom of the page. This will open the appointment detail window. Once it is open, scroll to the bottom where you will find “This schedule supports file attachments.” Use the “browse file” button to upload both the assignment instructions and your own written work.

During the scheduled appointment time, an RGASC instructor will review your document, add comments, and upload it to the system. After the appointment, you can download the commented-on document. If your paper isn’t available for download after your appointment time ends, contact us and we can email it to you.

ONLINE Appointments

We continue to offer Online – No Video/ No Chat (asynchronous emailed feedback) and Online – Video/ Chat (synchronous) appointments.  Please see the drop-down menu at the top of WCONLINE, after you have logged in, to see what online appointments are available for booking.

NEW: MATH ONLINE Appointments

We have math online appointments available throughout the week, as of March 25, 2020. Please see the "Math Online Appointments W2020" schedule, located by selecting drop-down menu at the top of WCONLINE, after you have logged in, to see when math online appointments are available for booking. The appointments are online with video and chat (synchronous appointments).

Before your appointment, prepare your documents including your assignment instructions AND your work in progress or questions. During the scheduled appointment time, an RGASC instructor will be available via video and chat functionality to review and discuss your document, chat about your concerns, and provide feedback to support you in improving your math skills. After the appointment, you can download the document and additional materials if created during the appointment. If your document isn’t available for download after your appointment time ends, contact us and we can email it to you.
