Information for Academic Staff

AA Team

The Academic Achievement Team provide academic and information skills workshops, drop-ins, and other support to help students become independent learners.

Studiosity Information for Staff

What is Studiosity?

Studiosity, the new 24/7 service for our students, is here. This is a free online service providing on-demand study skills help to students any time anywhere, on or off-campus. The service extends our support by being available when other help is not eg during the evenings, at weekends, holiday periods.  Students can interact with the Studiosity up to ten times in each academic year.

How can Studiosity help me?

 The Service offers:

  • Writing feedback where Students can upload their work at any time of day or night, and receive feedback within 24 hours. The feedback they receive is intended to help with their academic writing skills at an early stage by indicating areas for improvement related to structure, writing style, language use, spelling and grammar. It does not deal with content.
  • 'Connect Live' option where students can receive live support in areas including basic English, maths and stats, science and generic study skills via online chat and a collaborative whiteboard service.

Studiosity works alongside the existing advice and help already provided by the Academic Achievement Team. Please encourage your students to use Studiosity as a stepping stone for submitting a first draft in good time so that they can:

  • consider the feedback and, if needed, come to an AA Team drop-in to discuss how to apply this
  • or bring to a meeting with their Academic Guidance Tutor

OR

  • an area of difficulty may have been identified which can be addressed in one of the AA team’s workshops (see workshops and events calendar on the Library home page)
  • or online with more detailed guidance and/or interactive resources on the Learning Skills Hub  

Where can students find Studiosity?

Students can find the Studiosity link on their Moodle dashboard page and on the Library home page, bottom right.
