Academic Skills Support event at Leeds Metropolitan University

There is an Academic Skills Support event on 20th June 2012, at Leeds Metropolitan University, UK, Cost is £60. "Are you being asked to extend the range of academic skills support offered by your library? Would you be interested in hearing how other libraries provide this kind of service and the innovative ways in which they deliver tutorials, workshops and resources? Libraries and Learning Innovation at Leeds Metropolitan University is hosting a professional development event on the approaches used by a number of libraries to support students’ academic skills. The event will be an ideal opportunity for those involved in this area to share experience and discuss best practice."
There is a full programme, including "Skills for Learning at Leeds Metropolitan University" (Karen Croft and Marie Scopes); "Skills@Library at the University of Leeds" (Helen Howard); "Academic skills at Loughborough University" (Steph McKeating) and parallel sessions e.g. "Supporting international students in their academic skills".
