The Writing and Communication Centre offers workshops on a variety of communication-related topics throughout the term. Developed and presented by our writing and multimodal communication specialists, they are designed to help students engage with a particular topic through participation and practice. Like all of our services, workshops are free for University of Waterloo students and postdocs.
