If you would like us to run a session on study skills, maths or statistics in one of your modules, then do let us know. In addition to the ‘flag waves’ we do in induction, we are happy to help with study skills, maths or statistics sessions, provided we can work with you to ensure that what we do is properly embedded in programme content. Generic study skills sessions that are tagged on to modules are not very effective but subject-specific ones work well. We are a limited resource but will be happy to help if we possibly can. Embedded Upgrade sessions have been praised by staff and students alike and have the added benefit of establishing a working relationship with students, many of whom go on to further their skills through one-to-one Upgrade tutorials. It may interest colleagues to know that whilst Upgrade appointments are confidential, we can offer feedback on the numbers of students using the service by Faculty, Department, and module. From 2016-17, we also plan to collect data that will allow us to offer (upon request) data on what kind of issues students had on particular modules.
