Help with your studies in Trimester 3

Help with your studies in Trimester 3

The University has a service dedicated to helping you develop your study skills. In this myView blog, Politics student and peer writer Anna Heath highlights what Te Taiako—Student Learning has to offer this trimester.

Kia ora, I’m Anna!

I am a peer writer at Te Taiako—Student Learning this year while I study towards a Master of Politics. Trimester 3 is here, and I thought it would be good to give everyone a heads up on what will be happening at Student Learning over Summer!

What is Te Taiako—Student Learning and how can we help?

Te Taiako—Student Learning supports students to make the most of their time at the University. We help to develop the writing, thinking, study and maths skills necessary for success. We provide information, workshops, resources, and individual appointments to help you develop these skills.

We are also happy to help with planning and writing assignments, referencing, time management, preparing for oral presentations and exams.

Supporting you remotely and on campus this trimester

We know that many of you may be heading home or elsewhere while studying over Trimester 3. To accommodate for this, we’ve made most of our services easily accessible online. Our one-to-one appointments and workshops can be accessed online via Zoom or email.

Meet one of the team on Zoom and get on top of that assignment

Zoom appointments and success workshops usually operate in the same way as face-to-face appointments, except virtually (obviously!) and usually one person will share their screen to show an assignment or resources. Find out more about our appointments and book a time.

Submit your work and get feedback via email

Email appointments involve sending in your work for a learning advisor to look over and add comments or suggestions before sending it back. Of course, if you come to campus regularly, you can meet us in person if you prefer.

Workshops on a range of topics

During trimester 3, we have a great range of workshops running. Most are held over Zoom. Check out our workshop timetable for Trimester 3.

If you don’t have time to attend workshops, try StudyHub

StudyHub is an online resource library full of handy tips and tricks to help you with your academic learning. These resources cover a range of topics, including academic writing and reading, skills for online learning, research skills, note-taking, and time management.
