Online drop-in consultations with UOW academics
Learning Development academics are available for short consultations (up to 30 minutes) through online drop-in sessions at the Learning Co-Op. This support can help students with understanding your assessment task, evaluating sources, referencing and avoid plagiarism, academic writing, critical thinking, and analysis and argument.
Extended consultations with UOW academics
Students from all campuses can book a free consultation (up to one hour) with a Learning Development academic on understanding assessment tasks, use of academic language, thesis writing or maths and stats. These are available in person (when health safety restrictions allow), online via Zoom (or preferred video conferencing medium), by email or by phone. Further details on what to expect from a consultation is below.
