Information for lecturers and tutors

The Academic Language Learning Service is here to provide academic support to all CDU students. Our aim is to help students develop their academic language and literacy skills, and positively affect the retention rate and satisfaction of students. We would like to form partnerships with academic staff across the university.


Workshops are held in both on-campus and onland. Limited availability in Semester 1 2021, contact us for more information.

If you believe that your students can benefit from a workshop in a certain area (eg. essay/report writing, task analysis), request a workshop(s) targeting this study skill area specific to the unit in collaboration with you. Embedded workshops are customised and designed to cater specifically to the students in any particular unit. They are conducted at the invitation of the lecturer/tutor. Workshops are conducted on campus and/or online, they are 1.5 hours duration, and are recorded using Collaborate.

Inform your students of all our services early on and throughout the semester

Students will remember promotions of our services best from their lecturers, tutors and friends. Please promote our services by directing your students to the our website by putting a link to the webpage on your assessment tasks and a link on your Learnline unit site.
