About our session types

In general the Skills Centre offers the following types of skills development opportunities, although not all session types are available for all topics:

  • Workshops: An in depth introduction to a topic, which typically includes some discussion and activities with up to 12 students.
  • Webinars: An online version of a workshop, with participation via the chat and voice features in Blackboard Collaborate and other tools.
  • Forums: An opportunity to share and discuss work in progress or the development of your academic skills with up to 4 students, and a learning adviser.

From October 1st, the following options are replacing our existing 1-1 tutorials and same-day drop-ins:

  • 1-1s: A 30 minute session with a learning adviser in person or via phone to advise you how to further develop your academic skills
  • Quick Query Drop-ins: A 15 minute opportunity to ask for advice or find out how to obtain further help on a skills topic.

Find out more about these different session types and how to register to book for sessions, or scroll down to see the forthcoming sessions and book a place.  Places must be booked on all sessions except the quick query drop-ins.
