1 Learning and Teaching Enhancement Unit e-Support for Study Skills at Transition to HE What is e-support for study skills? How are resources used and delivered? What we provided for the PLPP project What have we learnt?

2 Learning and Teaching Enhancement Unit What is already out there?    earning/components.shtml earning/components.shtml  And most HE institutions here and abroad Most use the same approach. Is this the way students learn?

3 Learning and Teaching Enhancement Unit What is required? Online Learning resources need “to be sufficiently attractive and sufficiently interesting to whet students' appetites for learning;” to look professional to be taken seriously to “provide students with carefully-chosen tasks and exercises which will give them the sort of practice that will help their learning to be successful.” To provide feedback on how their independent learning is going. provide “opportunities to make sense of what they have learned” provide “opportunity and encouragement to work with fellow students”. (Race 1996)

4 Learning and Teaching Enhancement Unit How might central resources be used? Model 1: Staff use resources to support their teaching, provide opportunity for peer support and feedback Model 2 Staff direct students to materials and provide feedback on progress Model 3 Materials are provided for students to access at their own discretion. The last reflects the deficit model traditionally found in HE.

5 Learning and Teaching Enhancement Unit What was provided in the PLPP? Self-audits in a number of areas with printable feedback which directed users to additional resources. Organised under 4 areas, not 6 as in Key Skills, to reflect the different range of skills required while studying in HE Areas reflected in the e- portfolio system used in the PLPP project.
