Teaching in the curriculum
The Skills team and faculty team librarians work in partnership with academic staff to design, develop and deliver discipline-specific, curriculum-based academic skills activities. These can be for face-to-face teaching or for online support.
- Postgraduate nanotechnology students learn about plagiarism and the conventions which underpin academic practice:
Skills advisers, faculty team librarians and academic staff deliver workshops to develop the critical thinking skills of UK and international students.
- First year Business School students improve their academic writing skills through a personal tutorial module:
Skills advisers and faculty team librarians work with programme leaders to create discipline-specific resources which support students making the transition to writing at university.
- Students returning to nursing:
maths tutors from Skills@Library work with the School of Healthcare to develop innovative e-learning resources for students needing support with maths.
Our Academic skills strategy (PDF), launched in 2010, outlines plans for how we will work with schools in the University to deliver academic skills support within the curriculum.
Please contact your faculty team librarian to discuss working with us to support academic skills development in your programmes or modules.
