Times and information about our dedicated support base for Informatics students.
InfBase is a student helpdesk where year-1 and year-2 students can drop in to get additional tutoring and support with their courses. InfBase tutors are selected on the basis of expertise and coverage, offering support and advice on core pre-honours courses in Informatics. In addition to supporting drop-in assistance, InfBase can be used as a place to work together with other students, with support from an InfBase staff member.
InfBase location and opening times
InfBase is in room 7.03 of Appleton tower, and is staffed during several hours on Monday through Friday (hours TDB) during the normal semester (Weeks 3-11) and during Revision weeks. See the detailed schedule for when tutors with specific expertise will be present.
How does InfBase work?
InfBase supports student learning by providing answers to questions when you need them, by having several tutors whose expertise covers all core pre-honours courses. Just drop in into one of the sessions, you don't have to sign up in advance but comitting regularly can help you pacing your course work.
The schedule lists all the InfBase sessions from week 3 on.
- The columns right of the tutor name (yellow and blue cells) show Year 1 and 2 lectures as run by the lecturers.
- The green cells indicate InfBase sessions along with tutor name the courses this tutor supports (the 'x' fields).
- A capital 'P' for Inf2A instead of an 'x' means that this course has priority in this session; the tutor will handle questions about Inf1a with priority. There are 9 priority sessions for Inf1a during the week.
All sessions will be in Appelton tower AP 7.03, running for 1h. No need to sign up but please be flexible if the session turns out to be full. The room as around 12 workplaces.
