Hello, and welcome to the first in our brand-new student blog seriesUniSkills Focus On exploring key resources for your studies! Over the coming year we will publish a new blog on the last Friday of the month (a bit like a payday bonus!). Each blog will focus on a different resource, or selection of resources, designed to help you maximise your reading and research skills!
In each blog we will look at:
The benefits of the resource
How to find and access the resource
How you can get the most out of using the resource
A warm welcome from Library and Learning Services to all new students and hello again to all returning students . We look forward to meeting you and getting to know you all this year. We are the Student Engagement Team (you may hear us referred to as UniSkills) and we are here to provide support with all aspects of your academic skills.
As sure as day follows night, the new academic year is upon us again and all the Library and Learning Services(LS) support teams are so excited to meet you! And the good news is you don’t need to wait long to make our acquaintance!
Visit us in the HUB, in Catalyst, and online during your first weeks of term to hear all about the fantastic LS support, resources and facilities available to you as an Edge Hill student. And, possibly even more excitingly, take part in our welcome competition!
A warm welcome from Library and Learning Services to all new PGCE and PGDE students. We look forward to meeting you and getting to know you all this year. We are the Student Engagement Team (you may hear us referred to as UniSkills) and we are here to provide support with all aspects of your academic skills.
From preparing your academic resilience and discovering research skills at university, to academic writing and transitioning to postgraduate study, these sessions are designed to help boost your confidence ahead of the academic year.
For those who may have upcoming Summer Assessments, we wanted to remind you that UniSkills is still here to support you. Whether through our usual 1-2-1 appointments or wealth of online resources covering referencing, proofreading and more, there’s plenty on hand to help you prepare and continue developing your academic skills.
Library & Learning Services have lots of information on how to make documents accessible on their wiki pages and accessibility training takes place throughout the year. Please contact [email protected] for information.
At Edge Hill the Ally tool is available to all staff and students within Blackboard course areas. Staff can use this to see how accessible a course area is and establish which changes should be made to course items to improve accessibility. For staff and students Ally enables course content to be downloaded in alternative formats to suit individuals’ needs.
