‘The Hub’ development – major structural work

Construction work on The Hub, the new central information point for students, continues at a pace. To allow major structural work to be undertaken it is anticipated that the foyer area of the Robertson Trust Library building at Paisley Campus will be required to close completely from Friday 1 July for up to five weeks.

Every step will be taken to minimise disruption and alternative signage will be in operation throughout this period. Students are thanked for their patience during this key part of the construction process.

All student facing services including the first point of contact for the Library, Student Services, ITDS and Finance queries will be accessible via The Hub.

Construction works on the new facility commenced on 23rd May and will last approximately 14 weeks with The Hub being operational by September. Whilst The Hub will be physically located on the Paisley Campus it will be accessible online and via telephone across all UWS campuses.

The Hub area will provide a vibrant space for students which will include self-help resources, a service desk and both learning and social spaces. It will also feature pop-up spaces for events and campaigns and self service functions/equipment. The key aim is to ‘put the student experience at the heart of what we do’ and support the UWS truth ‘we are here for our students’.

Students will be kept fully updated during The Hub construction process. However if you have any question regarding the project please contact Liz O’Reilly on 0141 848 3994 or email elizabeth.o’reilly@uws.ac.uk

UWS Standing Safe campaign

UWS Standing Safe campaign launch

The University is establishing a student-staff partnership initiative, aimed at sexual violence prevention, the UWS Standing Safe campaign.

The campaign, which will be aimed at students from across the University, will be officially launched at Paisley Campus (Brough Hall) on Wednesday 14 September 2016, 1pm-4pm. The launch event will include guest speakers from organisations such as Rape Crisis, the NHS and Police Scotland and will feature poster presentations showcasing research from staff and students, as well as a number of stalls from relevant external organisations.

The campaign will see close collaborative working with a number of national organisations and activists in a number of different ways, starting from the new academic year. The project aims to engage with students in an attempt to reflect on harmful attitudes, support safe bystander intervention and provide a tool kit to ensure that students know how and where to get support.

Further details on the launch event, and the campaign in general, will be announced in the coming months. If you have any queries or would like to be involved in the launch event and/or the wider campaign please email Kallia Manoussaki or John Black.

Concept Maps to improve learning

Concept Maps are known to improve student learning and there are numerous apps available to assist in producing them from scratch. Inspiration is loaded on all the University computers and Mindmup is a free download and happens to be my favourite. But how about an app that will quickly creating a concept map with relevant content. Wouldn’t that be good and a great time saver? It could give the students an immediate overview of the topic with minimum effort. So in these days of “there will be an app for that”, I spent a bit of time hunting out a concept map creator. The quick solution I found was InstaGrok. They advertise it as providing the ability to “Research any topic with an interactive concept map, that you can customize and share”. Try it at https://www.instagrok.com. I found it fascinating and I’m sure you will too.
