Getting your voice heard about the services the Library provides is such an important part of being a student. And to help with this, we are holding two eventful discussions during student voice week which we’d love for you to take part in.
Discussion 1: The OU Library: How can we help YOU?
Did you know the Library has a helpdesk open 24/7? Well, we do! And we want to learn more about how we can better help you. From finding resources for your TMA to answering questions around referencing and more, we are here to help you in your studies. Join our informal chat to talk about what you want from the Library and help us shape the service so that it really meets your needs.
The session will take place on Wednesday 17 November from 19:00-20:00 on Adobe Connect. We can register up to 20 students and participants will receive a £10 AmazonUK voucher as a thank you for their time.
Register via our Discussion 1 Signup Form and we will send you a link to the meeting room closer to the date.
Discussion 2: User research with students with disabilities
Accessibility is important and we are committed to testing and improving databases and other systems we use at the OU. Working directly with students with disabilities is essential and we want to learn more from students to increase participation. What issues are important to you, what would encourage participation in our research and what barriers do you face that may prevent you from participating in insight activities?
This informal discussion is hosted by members of the OU Library, LXT and the acting chair of the OU Disabled Students Association. The session will take place on Monday 15 November from 12:00-13:00. We can register up to 20 students and participants will receive a £10 AmazonUK voucher as a thank you for their time.
Register via our Discussion 2 Signup Form and we’ll send you the meeting link to join us online in MS Teams.
Join in with our social media activity
We have a week full of entertaining posts planned so that you can share with us your experience of using Library resources and services. We’ll also be sharing some insight into what students in previous years have asked us for and what we’ve done in response. There’ll also be some fun quiz questions relating to the OU’s wonderful history. Make sure you follow us on Facebook and Twitter to join in.
Your voice as a student really does matter and has a direct impact on the services we provide. So, if you’d be interested in having your thoughts and feedback heard, learning more about the University, and even meeting some fellow students and academic staff along the way, get involved with as much as you can during Student Voice Week 2021.
