UniSkills provides a wide range of support designed to help students develop their academic skills and confidence at University and beyond. The Student Engagement team (part of Library and Learning Services) are committed to continuing our support during this uncertain time, albeit in a slightly different way.
The team are currently working from home at various locations across the North West (from Ormskirk to Hebdon Bridge!) but continue to provide 1-2-1 appointments, UniSkills workshops (now webinars) and embedded classroom sessions.
We know our popular UniSkills workshops are valued by students across all years of study to help them find high-quality academic information online and develop their academic writing and referencing skills. We are now delivering these workshops as webinars via Blackboard Collaborate. Find out more on our UniSkills webpages.
Our 1-2-1 appointments remain in high demand and support is now also offered via Blackboard Collaborate. Once students have booked a 1-2-1 appointment in the usual way we will send them all the information they need to join the appointment online. Whilst it’s not the same as a face to face appointment, students have found them beneficial so far and we can provide lots of advice and guidance on all aspects of producing University assignments.
Embedded sessions/online content
The Student Engagement team are also available to join you within your online classroom environment or we can provide digital materials that you can share with students and/or host in Blackboard. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your requirements.
We also have a wide range of online support and information available 24/7 on the UniSkills webpages, and students can also access this information via their ‘My Library’ tab in Blackboard.
If you have any questions or queries about how we can support your students with their academic skills during this period please do get in touch.
