Encouraging students to ask for academic help

2 August 2022

Have you ever wondered why more students do not seek you out for help with their course work and assessment?

This is because students sometimes would like to seek academic help but do not feel they are able to.

Reflect on the learning and teaching environment you provide in your course and see if you can possibly remove some of the barriers, including psychological barriers, that might limit a student’s inclination to ask for academic help.

To assist you and your students, we have created an Encouraging Students to Ask for Academic Help Checklist and Tips Sheet which provides some ideas for how you can encourage help-seeking behaviour in your students.
