The course is designed around the acquisition of effective student life skills. An emphasis is placed on independent study and learning skills, effective life style management and self motivation. The investigation of learning integrates the acquisition and organisation of knowledge and understanding of learning with life skills. By focusing students' attention on the study and learning processes, individuals are made aware of their competencies and of the learning strategies required in tertiary study. Regular feedback on written work and in class discussion helps them form an understanding of the nature of their own resources and how to learn in a purposeful, organised and appropriate way. The course assumes that, if capable students are made aware of effective learning and study methods, and they can be guided to success in these matters, they will subsequently act to optimise their academic performance.
