Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS)
Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS):
Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) are academic support sessions for students taking historically-difficult courses. These highly interactive sessions are led by upper-year students, supporting collaborative learning strategies to help students process and review course content, while also developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills. PASS sessions are open to all students who are enrolled in PASS-affiliated courses and provide opportunities for attendees to meet and work with other students in the course!
PASS is offered by the Canaccord Learning Commons (CLC).
Every term, sessions begin approximately the 3rd week of class.
More information about which courses are offered by PASS and delivery methods can be found in the 'CLC: Online' canvas course, and in course-specific canvas sites for affiliated courses.
How to make the most of PASS
PASS is a complement to attending lecture, TA review sessions, and office hours. Leaders will review specific topics each week, but a basic understanding is expected from students.
