Library Teaching and Learning Support (TLS) helps students in developing the skills they need to excel at university via:
- 1-2-1 tutorials
- Self-study resources
Although TLS focuses on developing academic and information literacies such as writing, critical thinking, finding literature, reading and note-making, and soft skills such as time management, group work and presentations. TLS can particularly support students around their assessments, coursework, revision and exam preparation.
TLS supports students through transition and acclimatisation to university culture, particularly with rules and conventions, including academic integrity. Queen Mary’s diverse and inclusive student intake can mean that a range of students can benefit from this orientation, beyond outmoded stereotype of ‘international’ or ‘widening participation’ students.
From 2022, TLS will be offering support for statistics and maths to students across the University.
It should be noted that TLS does not directly support students with English language issues or specific learning difficulties (see Language Centre and Wellbeing respectively).
