Our vision is to create a thriving, vibrant RDC writing community wherein students, staff and instructors alike gather to discuss all aspects of academic writing.
Using scaffolded instructional techniques and student-centred learning approaches, we strive to help RDC writers discover the knowledge and develop the skills they need to become confident, competent and independent writers.
Looking for help with your references?
The Writing Skills Centre tutors are more than happy to help you as much as they can with APA, MLA, and/or Chicago style references. Do not forget, however, that the library has staff to help with all citation/reference questions. If you are on campus, just drop by the library desk. If you are off campus, start a live chat session, text, or phone us.
