What’s the best way to maintain academic integrity when submitting assessments? Where can students with a disability go for support throughout their studies? What strategies have people used to look after themselves and connect with peers during the massive changes of the last six months?
If these issues are on your mind, PeerPod is for you. It’s the University Library-hosted podcast run by students, for students.
Hosted by the Library’s Peer Learning Advisors (PLAs), this bi-monthly podcast is all about increasing a deeper sense of connectivity and belonging at Uni. As currently enrolled postgrads, PLAs have a wealth of knowledge and study experience.
PLAs are joined by expert guests to share their advice and experiences. Each episode shares stories and advice, and answers many a frequent question about student life at the University of Sydney.
Previous PeerPod podchats have covered such topics as bouncing back from academic failure; maintaining mental health and good study habits during self-isolation; and strategies for transitioning from undergrad to postgrad study. Future episodes will explore allyship LGBTQIA+ inclusivity, and what we can all do to green our campus and our communities in the face of serious ecological challenges.
PeerPod is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Soundcloud. You can also learn more about previous episodes on our website.
