This course introduces the scope, purpose and strategies associated with effective study and learning with particular application to academic and professional settings.
Students progress through a program which requires them to manage their own learning through a process of self-development. Effective study strategies and attitudes will be developed and applied to areas of professional studies to prepare the student for successful management of higher education study more broadly. Students will also develop the skill of critical thinking - an essential skill of higher education scholarship and a foundation for academic culture. The course provides a comprehensive introduction to critical thinking theory and practice, exploring issues including critical thinking and university culture, critical reading, critical analysis and critical writing.
