Online learning may be new to your students, but it is business as usual for academic skills. Here’s a summary of the support we provide to improve their online learning, writing, referencing, and numeracy skills.
Basic and Key Skills Builder (BKSB) is an online tool that can be used in subjects and courses to identify, diagnose, and improve literacy and numeracy skills. Students use it independently, no marking is required, and reports can be generated quickly and easily. Read on to find out how this tool can be used to support your students and improve compliance with the ELLaN Policy and the ALaN GLO.
In order to benefit from feedback, students need to understand its value and act on it, but there is strong evidence to suggest that students often don’t read feedback. How can ALLaN help you use feedback from your first assessment to provide individualised instruction for students and improve learning, teaching, and assessment in your subject? I’m glad you asked!
These resources and strategies from the BJBS ALLaN Faculty Liaison can support the development of your students’ language, literacy, and numeracy skills and save you time and effort.
