Teaching Students to Learn: A Student-Centered Approach.
Gibbs, Graham
Methods, their rationale, and exercises for Open University tutors are presented. The book is divided into two parts, the first concerning practical issues of how to actually teach students to learn and the second dealing with theoretical issues and the rationale for the teaching methods described in Part I. Part I, "A Student-Centered Approach in Practice" includes six exercises to teach students to learn: how to learn best; organizing yourself; taking notes; reading-using books; writing; and taking exams. Suggestions are included on designing your own exercises, and putting your own course together. Part II, "The Rationale for the Approach" includes the following sections: why not to just tell students to learn; ways that students develop as learners; how students' development can be facilitated; and use of structured group exercises. Also provided are references, indexes, and selected further reading. (LC)
