Academic Skills Development Workshops

Academic Skills Development Workshops

The Gifu-city Learning Centre offers workshop programmes throughout the academic year on a wide variety of academic skills. Some workshops focus on, or explain, different tasks such as essays, oral presentations, reports and research papers. Other workshops help students develop particular skills essential to academic study such as critical thinking, referencing and understanding what plagiarism is.

Learning Centre workshops are designed for undergraduate and postgraduate students. A small selection are also specifically designed for students whose first language is not English.

Academic skills workshops are typically one to two hours in duration. Some workshops are run as a series and may be held once a week for two to seven weeks. That is, they are developmental. Others are run as 'once only' workshops. Workshop sizes are usually limited to a maximum of 30 students in order to maintain a fairly informal structure.
