Key Skills - Making a Difference
Conditions of Use:

Rating

This unit focuses on higher level skills. Skills development is complementary to other learning - it cannot be done in isolation. The higher level skills in this material aim to raise your awareness of the processes of learning and development - other subject-based material must supply the context and motivation for this. Key skills underpin the ability to carry out successfully, and improve on, a wide range of tasks in higher education, employment and wherever there is a continuation of learning. We hope that you will study this unit over a period of time in conjunction with a course or work situation. For example, you may complete 1 hour per week for selected skills over a 40-week period.

This dictionary arose from the Higher Education Academy-funded Collaborative Teaching Development Grant ‘Closing the Loop: Bridging the Gap between Provision and Implementation of Feedback’. While the original project was aimed at the markers providing feedback, the dictionary is the result of the realisation that students need to be able to access the resources directly themselves.

This style and referencing guide aims to address these questions and more besides. We hope that after reading it you will have a good sense of what we are looking for in your written work, but if anything remains unclear after reading this, don’t hesitate to ask your personal tutor or subject tutors for further information. If you think key information has been omitted, is unclear, or is contradictory, please bring this to our attention! We can’t fix it if we don’t know it’s broken.

Time Log Workbook (Template)
Conditions of Use:

This Google Sheet was created to support a Time Management module in a Strategies for College Success course. The plan is for the instructor to share one copy of the Sheet with each student for an assignment lasting 2 or 3 weeks. Students estimate the time they spend each week on common daily tasks, such as sleeping, working, or attending class. Space is provided for students to enter up to three custom tasks. After estimating how they spend time, students track their time spent for a full week. Through the magic of spreadsheet formulas, time spent per task is color-coded to help visualize large and small blocks of time. Time for the week is tallied on the summary tab, where a warning message appears if less than 24 hours are logged for any given day. After comparing their estimated hours to their actual recorded hours, students propose changes they can make in how they spend their time to increase their scholastic success. A tab with five questions is included for student reflection. Instructions for how to use the Sheet are provided for faculty on the Info & LIcense tab. Cell formulas are editable only by the document owner; students cannot accidentally overwrite. Colors are selected from a palette known to be perceivable by people with most forms of colorblindness. Author contact information is available on the Info and License tab.
