ScHARR Bite Size for Teaching - Wednesday 28th March - 2.30pm, Regent Court - Willy Kitchen - The Academic Skills Hub (TASH)


Posted by Andy

Another week, another ScHARR Bitesized. This Wednesday Willy Kitchen from TILL will be talking about The Academic Skills Hub (TASH):

TASH: The Academic Skills Hub - is an online resource for students (and staff) at all levels of study which signposts users to some of the best study skills materials available openly on the web. It is also designed to encourage an independent and reflective attitude to study. With the development of the new 301 Study Skills and Development Centre, TASH is due to take on a new lease of life, and this presentation is intended to introduce you to some of its possibilities.

As usual, the meeting will start at 2.30pm in the Eric Wilkes room, Regent Court, it will last for 20mins followed by up to 10 minutes for questions. Bring a drink and we'll supply the cakes!
