Academic skills webinars

Academic skills workshops and webinars

The Academic Skills Team will be delivering an extensive programme of study skills workshops and webinars during the Autumn term.

These sessions will provide you with skills and resources to help you become an effective independent learner.  All City students are welcome, and the sessions are suitable for both undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Topics covered will include time management, independent learning, academic reading skills, note taking, essay writing, referencing, critical thinking, teamwork, and much more.

You can come to one session or several; please browse the programme and choose the sessions that meet your needs, then register.

All sessions start at 1pm and run for 50 minutes.

Materials (e.g. Powerpoints) for each session will be made available on the Academic Skills Team’s Moodle module a few days before the session and will be kept available for several months afterwards.

Please note: It isn’t possible to make you anonymous during an MS Teams webinar.  If you feel unable to attend because of this, you can instead view a recorded version of each webinar afterwards.  All the meeting information within Teams is automatically deleted after 30 days, but until that time is up, your name and anything you write in the chat thread will be visible if someone visits the meeting after it has finished.  The permanent recording will not include the chat thread.

The videos and slides from all past webinars will be made available in the Toolkit section of the AST Moodle Module:
