Practice Makes Perfect? University Students' Response to a First-Year Transition Course
Browning, Catherine; Sheffield, Suzanne Le-May
Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching, v1 p22-27 2008
This paper shares new insights on the first-year university student transition experience. Our research focuses on students' practice of academic skills developed in a "Foundations for Learning" course, from their own perspective, after they completed the course. Once they had an opportunity to practice what they learned in subsequent courses we investigated how such practice impacts students' attitudes toward learning and their university experience.
