Support for your students

 Research skills

Assignment Essentials introduces your students to finding, using and evaluating information for learning. You can refer your students to standalone modules on our website, or use the content in your Learn.UQ site.

Our librarians can build on this knowledge with tailored in-class training and workshops including:

  • finding quality, relevant information for assignments
  • introductory and advanced use of databases
  • introductory and advanced research techniques
  • classes featuring special collections from the Fryer Library.

 Digital skills

Encourage your students to use Digital Essentials, online modules aimed to develop their digital capabilities and knowledge.
