The Learning Centre offers JCU students a number of services and resources, including:
Learning advisors are available to assist JCU students with discipline specific requirements. They are 'action researchers' in their everyday interactions with students and have a wealth of knowledge in relation to student learning matters.
Learning advisors also work with academic staff in their lectures and tutorials to integrate language and learning skills into the curriculum. In addition, they work alongside academic developers to promote excellence in learning and teaching, and to improve the overall student experience at JCU.
Learning advisors have a specific interest in the first year experience of our students, and are particularly interested in working with all staff involved in teaching, tutoring and supporting first year students.
JCU students should first contact the Learning Advice Desk at their campus library for an initial 15-20 minute consultation with a peer advisor. Appointments are not required. Students who require a greater level of support or resources can then make an appointment for a thirty minute consultation with a learning advisor.
JCU staff may contact the Academic Language and Learning team to discuss their requirements and work with a learning advisor. Visit our Contacts page for staff contact information.
