2020 Learner journeys toolkit


The Library Service's Learner Journey toolkit supports students' journey, as they develop information, study and research skills throughout their university studies. Use the toolkit to embed these skills into your curriculum and help your students to become independent learners.

1. Our teaching menu helps you to schedule library and academic writing sessions at the right time for your students. The menu suggests session topics and recommends appropriate levels for each. These are flexible and you can pick and choose to suit the needs of your course.

Get in touch with your Academic Liaison Librarians or with the Centre for Academic English and Skills to discuss bespoke sessions. All staff have teaching qualifications and can talk to you about how best to support your students.

2. You can also use our self-audit tool with your course team. This will help your team agree what the learner journey looks like for your course and how it’s made clear to students. It will also help you identify whether anything needs to change, like including library and academic writing sessions.

To help you get the most from the self-audit tool, book a workshop with your Academic Liaison Librarians.

Below is a sample level four learner journey based on our experience. You can also view an accessible version of the sample learner journey.

The learner journey toolkit is research-informed, based on research carried out with staff and students in 207, 2018 and 2023.
