Academic Skills Tool Kit
Supports for Students in Navigating the University Learning Environment
The Academic Skills Tool Kit is an academic support program, supported by the Colleges at Trent and coordinated by Academic Skills, to help students navigate the demands of, and thrive within, the university learning environment.
In a curated resource folder uploaded to participating Blackboard course sites, Academic Skills instructors provide learning resources in the form of short videos, tip sheets, templates, and weblinks targeting essential learning skills (e.g., how to manage time effectively, reading and notetaking skills, writing strategies, studying and exam prep).
Look for the Academic Skills Tool Kit
Participating courses will have the Academic Skills Tool Kit available in their Blackboard course site. Look for the Tool Kit on the left-hand menu in your Blackboard courses!
Students: If you don’t see an Academic Skills Tool Kit in your course, we invite you to add Academic Skills to your own tool kit by booking an appointment, exploring our website, and following us on social media for tips and tools throughout the term!
Faculty: For further information about the Academic Skills Tool Kit or to determine whether you might like to add an Academic Skills Tool Kit to a course you are teaching, please email Academic Skills.
