For Academic Staff

The Skills for Learning website

The website is a bank of resources to help develop students' academic skills. These can be used:

  • Independently by students
  • In taught sessions
  • From links inĀ  myBeckett

All of the areas we cover, including skills such as: Academic communication, Professional skills and IT are shown on the homepage. We also have a page which shows topics of particular interest to our international students.

For specific topics, such as 'Plagiarism' we offer a set of web pages with essential information and learning materials. Each topic contains:

  • Learning outcomes
  • A list of further resources
  • A reflection sheet which students can use in portfolios

We also include interactive materials, such as quizzes. Our podcasts on academic skills topics have proved popular with students and staff - in some of them we have recorded our students passing on their experience, and hints for future students.
Our entire collection of podcasts is available in our podcast archive.

The website content has been adapted from learning materials produced by Leeds Beckett academic staff. The website design has been user tested with Leeds Beckett students and is refreshed every year to keep it up to current standards.
