Information for Staff

In-Course Workshops

We are pleased to collaborate with Academic Staff who wish to focus on academic skills development within their courses. In-course workshops can include but are not limited to:

  • Critical thinking
  • Academic writing
  • Presentation skills
  • Maths Skills

If you would like to discuss these and/or any other topics, please contact us at sls@abdn.ac.uk

How we work with students in individual Study Advice Sessions

All Study Advice Sessions are confidential unless the student elects otherwise. When working on academic writing with undergraduate and taught postgraduate students, we only discuss marked work with feedback. We go through the feedback carefully with the student in order to devise strategies for future writing. The Student Learning Service does not offer a proof-reading service.

Recommending the Student Learning Service

We are happy for you to recommend our Academic Skills Workshops or individual Study Advice Sessions to students. Please note, however, that students cannot be compelled to access our service. Please refer students to this website; by clicking on Workshops and Study Advice Sessions they will find details and booking forms.
