Making it work: A reflection on creating resources for students you never meet

Research output: Contribution to Specialist PublicationArticle


The Resource in a Box project at the University of Northampton was created to enable Sixth Form students to experience university resources within their own setting, without being taught in person by university staff. Physical boxes containing plans and resources can be borrowed by schools, each box having different content. Some of the boxes align with academic disciplines, but as a Learning Development (LD) Tutor supporting academic skills development in Higher Education (HE), I was approached to create a box which would support the development of academic skills. Here, I outline the resource I created, address the considerations of creating resources for independent use in other settings, and reflect on my experience.
