Description

Hi,

"Whether you're just starting out or are part way through your qualification, now is the perfect time to prepare and we can help..." My name is Jock Boyd and I'm one of the Academic Skills Facilitator in the Design Faculty. I'm part of the Learning Support Team and I offer weekly lectures covering a variety of learning skills. I offer workshops and 1 to 1 appointments to discuss any academic aspect of your course I'm a partner in your academic development and can help you make the most of the journey. To find me online, head to the Academic Learning Support Hub on your Learning Portal (Accessible via “The Pool Room” and “The Spot”).

Week 1: Time management

Student life is a busy life - it's a process of juggling lectures, assignments, jobs, creative endeavours and a bunch of other important stuff. Managing your time effectively is an important skill and one of the keys to study success. We'll give you the tips and tricks you need to manage the craziness and be prepared.

Week 2: Analyse assignment briefs

Assessing an assignment question - and understanding what is required - takes practice and we'll to help you learn how. In this workshop, we'll identify exactly what it is required in a brief so that you can take off on the right research track fast.

Week 3: Critical thinking

This is a primary skill for studying at college. When you're asked a question in an academic context, you'll need more than an opinion to answer it. Our team can show you how to logically support your argument with evidence and examples.

Week 4: Referencing & Avoiding Plagiarism
So this is where we leave google behind and build on critical thinking skills.We'll take you through how to reference resources and include them in your writing.


Come along to one of the workshops or just get in touch and let me know how I can support your success.
