Skills Support for Academic Departments 20/21

The Academic Skills Centre’s service offer has adapted for 20/21 to meet the requirements of the Framework for Educational Resilience.

The new offer contains a menu of academic skills sessions, delivered through a comprehensive set of online resources. These resources may include short Panopto recordings, canvas courses, LinkedIn Learning playlists and/or self-guided workbooks. On request, we can include subject specific examples/activities tailored to meet the needs of the Academic Programme or module.

We are also able to offer synchronous Q&A sessions for students. These sessions should align to a menu session and be timetabled in advance by the School. We are only able to offer one live Q&A session per semester for an Academic Programme or Personal Academic Tutoring module. Please see our new menu for more information.

The ASC will transition back to offering in-person support when it is possible and safe to do so

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 live Q&A sessions for semester 1 by 28 August and for semester 2 by 11 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 asc@contacts.bham.ac.uk. We really look forward to working with you.
