ECON 1000, 1010, 1530 and 1540 are very challenging courses for students. PASS sessions have been successfully implemented around the world as an effective strategy for success in such challenging courses. All students are strongly encouraged to attend weekly PASS sessions to foster their success in these courses. Research shows that students who attend PASS sessions regularly have a significantly higher success rate than those who do not. You can access a weekly two-hour peer-facilitated study session to help you compare notes, practice problem-solving, develop learning strategies, and prepare for exams. Trained undergraduate students known as "PASS Leaders" who have successfully taken the course before and will be re-attending lectures, will facilitate these PASS sessions. At its core, the PASS sessions will help you integrate what to learn with how to learn so you can succeed in your course. PASS Sessions are free and offered on a first come basis and will be capped at 30 students, so be sure to build the time for these sessions into your weekly schedule.
