These group sessions focus on particular topics such as Planning and Structuring, Critical Thinking, Reflective Writing, or Presentation Skills.
We normally meet online using Blackboard Collaborate (or sometimes Zoom). You can keep your camera and microphone off, and use text chat for questions.
The sessions include examples and activities to help to explain concepts, and you can ask questions via the text chat functionality to check your understanding.
The presentation slides are sent out in advance and additional useful resources are sent out after the session.
The Skills Centre offers some short courses which run for several weeks at certain times of the year, allowing you to really consolidate and improve your skills.
For some courses you can register your interest to be notified when bookings are open; for others, keep checking the Bootcamps page to find the next course dates.
