My name is Lorraine Anderson and I'm the Head of the Academic Skills Centre (or ASC), which is the team that has developed this Teach at Dundee online resource.

We would like to welcome you to the University of Dundee and look forward to working with you. Teach at Dundee aims to support all of you in feeling part of the wider University and we hope that the design of this resource, with its accompanying resources and information, will help you to do this.

We very much value your feedback so do let us know if there is anything that you would like to know about teaching at Dundee that is not provided here asc@dundee.ac.uk
