Study Skills and Learning.
This report describes a study that investigated the relationship between the learning process and teaching at the university level. Specifically, the study sought to answer three questions: (1) What is a fruitful way of observing and describing knowledge? (2) How can study skill be observed and described? and (3) How can study skill be influenced? Most of the data for the study were collected in experiments conducted with four different groups of students at the University of Goteborg over a period of three academic years. Based on an analysis of data from all the experiments, the author concludes that although it is easy to influence the orientation of a student's attention toward the superficial structure of a text, it is far more difficult to influence a student's cognitive attitude, that is, the way he or she defines a learning situation.
