Recent developments we have worked on include –
Led by the Faculty of Arts and Humanities in partnership with Student Learning Services. All new students entering an Arts and Humanities degree are invited to submit a short essay. Teaching assistants provide individual feedback and identify areas for further development. Students ‘at risk’ are referred to central services for immediate support and the feedback data are used to design and deliver a number of in-house interventions. This is running for the first time in 2016-2017.
We have an Ambitious Future graduate working on a project which aims to identify what 'academic orientation' activities may benefit students during their transition into university. The project is also exploring staff perceptions of learning strategies within the curriculum and identifying examples of good practice. More information on Ambitious Futures can be found here. http://www.ambitiousfutures.co.uk/
SLS have developed a ‘Learning Strategies’ framework which is being used to develop students and staff resources. It has also been used to map ‘Learning Strategies’ within modules. Initial work was presented at Scot-ELAS conference (May 2016) and the QAA conference (June 2016) in partnership with the Faculty of Health Sciences and the Careers and Employability Service. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information.
SLS have reviewed a number of study skills book from the library. This is to help staff and students choose one suitable for their needs. Copies of these reviews are available here. (Link to BOX)
SLS have been involved in developing the new University Feedback policy. SLS have worked with the Students’ Union on ‘Feedback Fridays’ to collect and collate data on how students use and value their feedback.
