We seek to promote deep learning and understanding through seminars and workshops for lecturers and through dialogue and joint developmental projects with individual lecturers and board of studies. Read more.
For students writing their Masters' thesis, we establish feedback groups where 4 or 5 students who study for the same degree and who are all in the process of writing their Master's thesis meet every two weeks or so, and offer each other feedback on their respective drafts. Read more about feedback groups and how to join.
Through individual supervision and feedback, we also help and advise students who experience difficulties studying. Read about individual counselling/feedback/supervision.
You can read our guides for international students "Study Skills" and "Writing Groups - Why and How" here or you can pick up a hard copy at the Student Counsellor's Office at your department. The booklet "Writing groups" gives concrete instructions on how to set up and conduct a successful writing group and passes on many years of experience with pitfalls and best practices.
The Teaching and Learning Unit of Social Sciences have produced 12 tutorials about study skills such as reading, writing and working in peer groups. Thet are now available with English subtitles. See them here.
