What's New with the ASC? Ramon Daines, Director of the ASC What's New in the Academic Success Center? The Academic Success Center team has been busy developing resources to meet the needs of the NCU community. We invite you to visit our website and explore the available resources. We are happy to answer any questions you might have about the Academic Success Center and look forward to discussing how we can best support you and your students. Group Sessions Since October, we have added three additional group sessions to the coaching schedule. Students have the opportunity to practice using APA 6 th and 7 th edition during the Basics of APA Style interactive session. The purpose of the Academic Writer group session is to provide students with helpful strategies for using this important tool. When attending the Fundamentals of NVivo group session, students have the chance to explore the NVivo interface and learn how to start their qualitative analysis. With these additions, students can now choose from 20 skill–based interactive group sessions every week. Review a list of the available group sessions with descriptions on our Group Sessions page. Self–Directed Resources One of our ongoing projects is the Academic Success Center website. Here, we promote self–directed learning by providing students with written resources that appeal to all learning modalities through the inclusion of videos, graphics, and downloadable content. The most recent additions to our available resources include a page devoted to APA 7 th edition and the Writing a Policy Brief page. Please contact us if you have any suggestions for additional resources. The NCU Library Amanda Ziegler, Director of Library Services The NCU Library has been busy adding new resources and services for you! We are getting ready to launch a new group in The Commons, the Library Insider. This is your space to learn and share strategies and insight on all things related to research and resources. Score updates on NCU Library happenings and get weekly training tidbits to help strengthen your research skills. Please join us there! In addition to our existing one–on–one research consultations focused on finding dissertation resources, we are excited to begin offering one–on–one appointments for students in Foundations courses, to help learn how to maximize library resources early in your studies. These one–on–one offerings are in addition to the multiple group sessions we offer each week on topics ranging from advanced search skills to RefWorks. View our calendar and find a time that is right for you. We've also added six new databases to the resources available to you, and you can find them on the A–Z Databases page (look for the new databases in the right hand column).
