Academic Skills and Well-being

We have created a Brightspace module, ALL Student Supports: University for All, to support you in your learning at UCD. This module is relevant to all students in UCD and is part of our University for All initiative. University for all brings together everyone in the UCD community to create an inclusive educational experience for all students. 

To enrol in the module follow the following instructions:  Log in to Brightspace, click "Explore" and search for "All student supports" in the search bar. Click on the module - ALL Student Supports: University for All and click - enroll. The module will then appear under Perpetual Semester on your Brightspace homepage.  

The module contains a number of interactive online workshops which you can work through at your own pace. We will also be hosting a series of live workshops in the module throughout the year. Each section contains useful resources including a special section on learning online developed by our occupational therapists and assistive technology specialists which addresses some of the most common challenges: staying motivated, juggling demands and feeling disconnected. 

The topics covered include organisation, note taking, digital skills, writing and research, study skills and revision, avoiding procrastination, apps for learning, group work, mind mapping, referencing, presentations, exam preparation, self care and stress management. 

You can also find all of the previous materials, as well as other useful resources, below and on our dedicated 'University for All at Distance' webpage. We hope you find the module useful. Please feel free to contact us at all@ucd.ie if you have any questions!
