The project will result in the creation of a skills suite using WebCT, designed for use in conjunction with face-to-face learning in individual modules as appropriate, or as a supplement to conventional teaching contexts such as seminars and lectures.

The project has successfully assessed the current skills and pre-induction provision. It has gone on to create a complete the generic skills resource Skills4Arts, made available to students in October 2008. In addition, the project has created discipline-specific skills materials in information retrieval, with the collaboration of the library’s subject specialists.

As the project attempted to engage with specific departments, it became clear that the focus should be shifted from an all-encompassing approach to a narrower focus on specific disciplines and modules, where there were both need for the material but also collaboration on the part of academic staff.
