Facilitated Study Groups (FSGs) are weekly collaborative learning sessions for students who want to improve their understanding of challenging content in selected courses at UTSC.
FSGs are led by a student who has excelled in the course previously and has been trained to facilitate the learning of current students, encouraging them to work together to build resourcefulness and knowledge in a stimulating environment. Group members discuss lecture material and important concepts, develop study strategies and fresh approaches, and work through problems to prepare for assignments and tests.
Research shows that students who attend FSGs regularly gain a deeper understanding of the material and, on average, achieve better grades.
Check below for the list of FSGs in the Fall 2021 semester. Please contact the FSG Coordinator, Maggie Roberts, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you wish to discuss an FSG for your course.
