Trimester 2 orientation activities for your students

While you’re preparing to start a new year of trimesters and teaching, we have a new influx of students preparing to start the university experience.

To help, the library is offering a range of orientation activities to ease their transition into uni-life. These include:

Earlybird workshops

We are running workshops across all campuses on:

  • writing university assignments
  • getting started on an ePortfolio with PebblePad
  • researching and referencing for your assignments.

Orientation tours

These 15 minute tours run throughout O Week at each Griffith library and give students an opportunity to see what’s where and how it all works. We also have online virtual tours for students who miss the on-campus library tours.

Market days

You’ll find our Griffith Library team at each campus Market Day, ready and willing to share everything we know about Library and IT at Griffith. We’ll be able to help students:

  • set up their Wi Fi
  • navigate the Griffith Uni app
  • access workshops to get uni-ready.

Find out more information on the Library’s orientation activities at the Library Orientation webpage.

Book a library specialist to present a workshop to your students

Our research and referencing, academic literacy and digital literacy specialists can be booked to present in-class or online workshops for your students. To do so, simply complete the online request form.
