DLLS offers staff the opportunity to embed academic language and literacies learning at subject and modular level. We will work with you to identify areas for learner development and work in partnership with you to plan and deliver learning and teaching activities to meet the needs of your students, drawing on your subject knowledge and our particular expertise in teaching academic literacies.
Academic literacies development is most effective when delivered in subject-specific ways, but takes time to prepare and because of that the deadline for semester 1 requests was Monday 28 June. The deadline for semester 2 is Monday 1st November. We will do our best to accommodate late requests so please do fill in the form if you would like us to help, but bookings made before the deadline obviously are prioritised.
We would like teams to work as strategically as possible to target resources where they are most needed and will have the most impact. Ideally, subject co-ordinators should nominate one member of staff to act as DLLS/Subject link and who would be willing to collect and collate requests for DLLS support in line with learning outcomes for the programme.
If you would like an informal chat about what might be possible as part of our DLLS offer, please email Martha O'Curry
To make a DLLS request, please fill in and submit the form below to email@example.com
Requests for DLLS support (Word .doc)
We offer embedded or adjunct support. We can work with you to develop teaching materials for you to deliver, we can co-deliver, or we can deliver on your behalf. You may want to plan for the whole group, or you may want to develop something to target a specific group of learners.
Here are a few examples of what we already do:
Our semester 2 deadline for requests has now passed. If you haven't sent your form yet, please let us know as soon as possible by email if you would like a session so that we can allocate workload and if the form could follow shortly after. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to accept any requests received after the deadline but we will try our best.
All requests are received by Martha O’Curry (Deputy Head of Centre for Academic Development) who will then decide which member of the team is most suited to deliver the session. We will then put them directly in touch with you in order to start planning.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Martha if you have any more questions.
