Abstract

The study includes a description of the USQ policy context and strategic agenda for the provision of Academic language literacy and learning skills (ALL). Existing Learning and Teaching Policy specifies that learning support shall be provided; however little is said in the forward-looking planning documents about any changes to this.
Current provision of ALL support at USQ is comprehensive, in line with the clear policy mentioned above. It is provided in Learning Centres at each of the three campuses in the form of one-on-one consultations and workshops. On-line support is provided through Wimba workshops, Study Desk and online resources through Learning Centre web pages. Pre-Semester programmes are run on all three campuses with the strongest running at Springfield campus.
