9.2 Study advice for students

A useful first line of resources on study advice is the Teaching and Learning Centre's Moodle site Learning World (http://moodle.lse.ac.uk/course/view.php?id=698|) which includes PowerPoint presentations, session notes and links to resources on a range of topics such as essay writing, exam preparation, dissertations, reading and time management. These are complemented by a year-long series of workshops and lectures and a limited number of one-to-one appointments with a study adviser or the Royal Literary Fund Fellow in the Teaching and Learning Centre. See Section 10 for contact details.

In addition, you may want to encourage students to read things for themselves. The Library has a number of items, for example:
