Students receive an induction session prior to the commencement of each academic year. The Dean delivers the induction session and the student handbook is distributed at this session. Students receive general and program specific information at this session including the timetable, the assessment schedule, and overview of the subjects being delivered that semester as well as the teaching and learning strategies. An overview of the library and how to access its online facilities is presented during the College’s Induction days.
Library inductions are also provided for all new and returning students and faculty, to familiarize learners with the library facilities, both physical and on-line, and also teaches them how to search and evaluate information, avoid plagiarism and reference correctly. Library Induction supports users to locate material relevant to their studies and research through Information Literacy Workshops. Inductions are run three times a day during the first week of term, and once a day during the second week, subject-specific induction is presented by a member of library staff in the classroom setting, within the academic timetable, upon request by a lecturer.
