SIX STEPS TO SUCCESS

This post was originally added to Learnhigher on:


For a session with students to get them interested in a whole new approach to successful study. The ppt can be used to support a session exploring the six steps –and the booklet can be placed in the VLE for students to explore at their leisure.

Currently the booklet refers to additional information in Burns & Sinfield (2004) Essential Study Skills: the complete guide to success at university London; Sage. Reference to this book can just be deleted from this Word file – or the user can supplement the information therein by referring to their own additional resources – or to other on-line resources see for example www.learnhigher.ac.uk

 

Activity: trial the ppt session with a group of students, then:

  • Invite the students to put various practices into operation and to feedback …
  • Invite the students to make a teaching/learning resource on one area covered to be used with another group of students.
