The Bootcamp events focus on learning about key skills and study techniques to help you get ready for your next module. Everyone is welcome, and anyone can take part. Whichever level you are studying at, these Bootcamps are an opportunity to share study tips and learn from each other, reflect on key skills, and think about what you might do differently in the future. Karen Foley will be joined by a fantastic panel of OU experts, who will share their knowledge and advice about key areas, including time management, navigating the VLE and using forums, task planning, and managing your digital material.

We recommend you select the Watch and engage button as this will allow you to interact with other students and the panel in the studio.
