Adult Continuing Education: Skills Centre Saturday Workshops

1 Nov 2019

The Skills Centre is offering specially formulated sessions to ACE students on Saturdays, these sessions will run from 10am - 1pm. They have been divided into two separate categories.

The sessions will include various skills lessons, which have been categorised as follows:

Academic Writing session:

  • Academic Listening
  • Note taking
  • Essay Writing

These skills are vital for your personal and academic writing in university, so we have combined them into one session. Academic Listening and notetaking will help you get the most out of your lectures as it will highlight methods of processing and recording information. The essay writing section will introduce you to the concepts required to engage in academic writing.

Academic Development session:

  • Reflective Writing
  • Presentation Skills

 These skills are vital for your personal & academic development in university & so we have combined them into 1 session.
Presentation skills and reflective writing will help you progress and develop your skills greatly throughout your college expirience.
