Adaptable resources

Adaptable materials Personal Tutors (and others) can use with your students.

These materials have been developed as generic study development resources and for use in workshops for students. The idea behind the 'springboard' concept is that they can be adapted and used by academics in their own teaching / tutoring so that they are appropriate to the needs of students in their particular contexts, courses and disciplines.
