How Can FSG's Help Me?

Welcome to Facilitated Study Groups (FSGs)!

FSGs for Winter 2021 are fully online so that students can join collaborative learning groups in select courses no matter where they are located during the pandemic. For more information on learning online, visit our new Academic Learning Support page: www.uoft.me/AcademicLearningSupport 
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. 
In FSGs you’ll discuss the lecture material and important concepts, develop study strategies and fresh approaches, and work through problems as a group to prepare for your assignments and tests. 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. The facilitator will attend lectures with you and will prepare activities and questions to ensure that each session is productive.  Research shows that students who attend FSGs regularly gain a deeper understanding of the material and on average, achieve better grades.

In Summer 2021, FSGs will be available in these courses:

  • BIOB11
  • BIOB34
  • CHMA11
  • CHMB42
  • LINA01
  • MATA22
  • PSYA01
  • PSYA02
  • PSYB70
