Study Matters is a practical learning and teaching podcast hosted by the Curriculum Design and Development team within Keele Institute for Innovation and Teaching Excellence (KIITE), designed to help students develop the academic skills they need to succeed in their studies.

In each episode of the Study Matters Podcast, the host will interview a guest expert about an area of academic practice in which students typically struggle. The aim of each monthly episode is to discuss a single issue and then provide strategies to address it, helping students learn how to study more effectively.

Topics may include reading and writing for academic purposes, critical thinking, time management, referencing, exam revision, and more.

All episodes can be accessed via the drop down selection below, along with transcripts and any resources.
