Event description
Sharing best practice: partnership working between Academic Staff and Academic Skills Team in delivering contextualised Academic Skills support for students
 
The Academic Skills Advisers have been working in partnership with module and programme leaders across the institution to integrate academic skills development and support students’ success. In this session we will be ‘showcasing’ some examples of this collaborative work from a range of programmes.
Contextualising academic skills support in relation to particular assignments helps to decrease student anxiety and increase confidence (Ooms, Fergy, Marks-Maran, Burke and Sheehy, 2013). In a study by Parkes, Blackwell Young, Cleaver and Archibald (2014), students perceived support that was integrated into modules as being more relevant than support delivered solely by professional services, particularly when linked to specific assignments. Furthermore, Wingate (2006) suggests students who are most at risk of failing academically are often those who are least likely to attend bolt-on classes, demonstrating the importance of a cohesive timetabled approach to support the requisite development of these critical skills.
With the student experience, retention and wider participation high on everyone’s agendas, this session demonstrates how we can work in partnership to support our students’ journeys to success.
