This project, undertaken in the Department of Politics, History and International Relations, involved a review of the Part A curriculum, identification of key skills mapped against the framework for Higher Education Qualifications and the exploration of suitable resources to support the development of key skills.

As part of the project, an interactive time management clock was developed:

This can be saved to your desktop as an html file and customised to suit particular requirements or used in its current format.

A resource to help students avoid common grammatical errors was also developed. Although discipline specific, this resource could easily be customised for individual disciplines:

A note taking resource was also created using a part of a ReViewed lecture.
