Abstract
The following paper arises from the author being invited to be part of a discussion panel of NZ tertiary learning advisors, at a regional hui. The main topic was the numeracy skills required for our current students to be successful with their studies. The paper gives some background and context, then focuses on the actual skills that students bring with them. This moves onto thinking about strategies to deal with any perceived numeracy deficiencies, including online help, tutorials and workshops. It then outlines the learning advisor services and support we can offer students, and finishes with a discussion of the skills necessary for effective learning advising and content advising to take place.
