Areas of learning
What is this about and what were the main findings?

Central to this project is a re-branded cross-college study skills VLE page, developed by the LRC staff, as a resource for staff and students whilst also being used as a springboard to promote the services offered by the LRC team. There were 3 main findings learnt from the project: (1) the use of formal methods of written communication needs to be reviewed; (2) having a range of roles within the project team created opportunities for sharing practice;(3) the 'pick and mix' approach to the new VLE page was well received.
