Peer Learning Program

Peer Learning Program

The Adelaide Central School of Art Peer Learning Program is designed to provide information, guidance and advice for students to help them navigate the demands of the BVA program. It provides opportunities to develop supportive, often role-modelling, relationships between enrolled students in the BVA program. 


Study Club

Study Club is our regular group study session designed to assist Level 1 and Level 2 students complete independent personal study tasks, including studio exercises, oral presentations, and written assignments. It is an informal peer-learning environment, in which students are encouraged to ask each other questions and share strategies for completing course material.

Study Club runs 10am to 5pm every Monday during teaching terms. Students are able to attend those days and times that best suit them. However, regular attendance gives students the chance to develop relationships with students outside class, including across Levels, and to cultivate techniques for effective study. 

Computer and Microsoft Office workshops

Workshops are offered throughout the year to help students improve their confidence using software programs relevant to their studies. Workshops are designed for new students and led by current students who understand what it's like to be a new student at Adelaide Central School of Art. 

 

One-on-one peer mentoring

This program is currently in development and will be offered in Semester 2 2018.

Peer mentors will be available to provide ongoing individualised support to students who have been identified as having significant difficulties in particular subject areas.

Peer mentors will make a valuable contribution to student well-being, and work with the goal of assisting students to develop transferable study skills that will assist them in future units.
