Some Hints on How To Study Effectively. Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, 25.
Ellington, Henry
Designed to help students develop efficient and effective study skills, the first of five sections in this booklet discusses the student role, including the overall purpose of a course of study, the student's obligations and responsibilities, ways in which a student is expected to develop, and the importance of organization. The second section looks at the actual learning process, explaining how learning occurs and how to achieve effective learning. The various resources available to students are reviewed in the third section: (1) teaching staff; (2) teaching support staff (library staff, computer specialists, technicians); (3) student services staff; (4) fellow students; (5) private learning resources (lecture notes, textbooks); (6) libraries and the materials they contain; (7) laboratories, studios, self-study centers, and other specialized facilities; and (8) computer facilities and associated software. Ways in which students can profit from these resources are also suggested. Focusing on course assignments, the fourth section shows how to prepare projects, reports, and essays in a systematic and professional manner. The final section shows how to prepare effectively for examinations and describes some test taking techniques. Four references on study methods and three on writing are recommended for further reading. (MES)
