Lecturers play an essential role in the development of students’ study skills and general learning development — and this role is likely to increase in the future. This growing importance can be attributed to changes in the composition of the student body, the spread of computerised information and the increased emphasis on skills development, often linked to ‘employability’. Additional skills development often enters universities purely as discrete provision, offered by a specialist centre or skills unit. It may become supplemented by modules which emphasise or specialise in study skills in a particular way. However, it is increasingly evident that, in addition to these two necessary forms of provision, learning development and skills enhancement do not thrive if they are divorced from the students’ overall teaching and learning experience. This necessitates the involvement of all lecturers.
