Getting started on assignments can be difficult.
Do you know what a peer reviewed journal article is? Are you confused about referencing correctly? Leap into Learning is for you!
Leap into Learning (LIL) aims to equip you with essential library and referencing skills which will help you succeed in your university studies and beyond. There are five modules which include topics such as identifying keywords in assignment questions, searching databases, academic integrity, using evidence and how to reference.
Students have given positive feedback about the LIL program:
“When I got my assignment, I didn’t know where to start or what to do. Leap into Learning really helped me figure it out step by step”.
“The best part of doing Leap into Learning was that it gave me confidence when doing research – I knew where I could find what I needed and who I could go to for help if I got stuck.”
Your lecturer or tutor may ask you to complete Leap into Learning from home or in tutorial time. If you get stuck, library staff can help, and you’ll see some libraries have drop in sessions just to help – check the calendar of training and events. Brisbane even has webinars for Brisbane students! (see the calendar of training and events for details).
What’s more, Leap into Learning contains loads of videos accessible throughout your degree to help you to get the hang of library searching and referencing skills. Log in to LEO and get started today!
