In response to growing concerns across college about the lack of study skills in students, SIR on oZone has been set up for all things related to Study, Information and Research skills. It should be the first port of call for students needing these skills and tutors to be able to point them to it.
The site contains a number of sections with topics including how to write a report, referencing an essay, researching online, writing skills etc. Varying types of resources are used within them, including podcasts, Youtube videos, Powerpoint presentations and Word documents.
If you have resources that would be suitable, either general or specific to your subject area, please send them to Julie (JPL) or Corinne (CWR) and they will add them to the relevant section.
Feel free to look around the site and use it in lessons; comments/resources are gratefully received and don’t forget to tell your students to ‘Ask SIR’
