Are you struggling to stay focused and motivated as the end of the semester approaches? You’re not alone! Procrastination is a common challenge among students, but there’s good news – Procrastination Awareness Week (PAW) is here to help. PAW is a collaborative effort by over 20 academic institutions from across Canada to support students in overcoming procrastination, developing effective habits, and making progress on their end-of-term to-do lists.  

From March 4 to 8, students from all participating institutions are invited to attend a series of remote workshops and virtual study halls aimed at providing valuable strategies for academic success. Join Dr. Joel Heng Hartse of Simon Fraser University for the keynote address titled “Write While You Read: An Approach to Avoiding Procrastination and Plagiarism,” happening Monday, March 4, from noon to 2 p.m.  

In addition to the workshops and events taking place, virtual study hall sessions happen each day. These study halls provide opportunities for you to work alongside students from across the country and make progress in a supportive virtual environment.

PAW is free, open, virtual, and inclusive. It’s a chance to connect with peers and take proactive steps towards academic success. Registration for Procrastination Awareness Week is now open – check out the schedule.
