Academic Skills Workshops

Compass Workshops provide you with key practical tools that to help you succeed in University. Workshop topics include time management, test prep, and math skills. 

Workshops are facilitated by Peer Coaches, upper-year TRSM students who are trained to support students in achieving their academic goals. 

Our No-Show Policy: As a Ted Rogers School student, we prepare you for the industry and that includes your level of professionalism as a business student. Our No-Show Policy means if you register for a session you are 100% committed to attending. If you sign up and do not attend three sessions without cancelling at least 24 hours in advance, you will no longer be able to attend our future events as you are also taking away a spot from another student until you meet with our management team. 

Learning Strategy Consultation

For further support, students can also access 30-minute one-on-one learning strategy appointments (virtual or in-person) with Gillian Lee, our Peer Learning Support Facilitator.


Please contact us in advance of your attendance to let us know if we can make any accommodations to ensure your inclusion in the Workshops.

All workshops are offered via Zoom, at this time. Live transcription will be available.


Train to Learn (T2L) Workshops are offered via Zoom. Please make sure you're signed in with your Ryerson credentials, to avoid any challenges in connecting.

Cancellation Policy

All students are required to cancel their ticket through their Blackthorn confirmation email if they are unable to attend a workshop. This ensures you will not be put on the no-show list.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
