What is Leap into Learning (LIL)?
The online tutorial 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, academic integrity, using evidence & how to reference and searching databases.
What’s in it for me?
Students have told us their 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.”
I’m excited, sign me up!
Just visit the LIL webpage and click on ‘self-enrol’. You will be directed to enrol via LEO. Easy!
If you get stuck, library staff can help.
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.
