Professors are often asked to write letters of reference by students applying for awards and employment.  While time-consuming and sometimes difficult, a strong reference letter can change the outcome of any application.  This interactive session is designed to help you answer questions such as:

• Are you obliged to write a reference letter if asked by a student and how might you respond if you are not supportive?
• How much lead time should you expect in order to write a reference letter?
• What information should be provided by the student?

Writing Effective Reference Letters will help you save valuable time and effort, while helping your students (and McGill!) stand out in a competitive world.
