QLC Sticker Pilot Project

The QLC has designed this sticker for Teaching Assistants and Instructors to use on students' assignments - essays, lab reports, exams, etc. You can indicate whether the student should seek help with their writing, research or study skills. When a student receives the sticker they are directed here, to the QLC website, where they can access a variety of resources to better help them make the grade. To see what resources are available, please see our QLC Sticker page. If you would like to pick up sticker sheets please contact the QLC (patrick.patterson@queensu.ca).
