Dr Justin Park, Academic Skills and Language Advisor (PhD English Language and Literature)
“As someone who was once a returning, mature age student, I can say there is no more valuable resource to support your success than the Learning Hub. The workshops are where you can develop and hone the skills necessary to not only pass but excel in your chosen subjects. These workshops are designed by experienced educators for the students at La Trobe and for their particular needs. No matter what your skill level, each workshop can offer something valuable to every student. I hope to see you there!”
David Maras, Peer Learning Advisor, studying Bachelor of Arts (Sociology)
“I helped with a referencing workshop previously; it was great and really comprehensive. It gave a run down of what referencing is, why it is important, and how to use it effectively. I learned some great tips on paraphrasing that have helped build my academic writing skills. We were also able to answer specific questions that students had regarding their discipline’s preferred referencing style and direct them to some tools and resources for use through their degree.”
