Skills support for academic departments 2022/23

The Academic Skills Centre’s service offer for 22/23 will be a blended approach delivering our menu of academic skills sessions through in person (on campus) workshops or online synchronous workshops and Q&As. We can also provide support through online resources. Our comprehensive set of online resources may include short Panopto recordings, canvas courses, and/or self-guided workbooks

Our workshops and Q&As need to be timetabled in advance by the School. Workshops and Q&As are usually 60 mins in length. On request, we can include subject specific examples/activities tailored to meet the needs of the Academic Programme or module. Please note that if a range of support is requested, a mix of delivery is likely.

For Digital Skills topics (Section C), we are actively encouraging staff to utilise LinkedIn Learning content. The team are able to source, review, curate and recommend content, from short bite-size learning blocks for specific tasks, to in-depth playlists covering broad digital skills topic areas. The team can also provide follow up 1:1 appointments with students, as necessary. 

How to request academic skills support for your students 

We have a centralised process for requesting skills sessions, via the form below. Schools should request support for semester 1 by 2nd September and for semester 2 by 16th December, where possible. Schools requesting subject specific activities should provide at least 2 weeks’ notice. 

Our aim is to ensure support is clearly linked to upcoming assessments or programme learning outcomes. If your students require something that is not on our menu, please feel free to contact us at; we are particularly keen to support new assessment forms so would welcome conversations on this. We really look forward to working with you.
