Can Students Be Helped to Learn How to Learn? An Evaluation of an Approaches to Learning Programme for First Year Degree Students.
Norton, Linda S.; Crowley, Catherine M.
Higher Education, v29 n3 p307-28 Apr 1995
Results of a British program of eight learning strategy workshops for university freshmen are discussed. The workshops focused on essay writing and test-taking skills. Regular attendees had significantly more sophisticated conceptions of learning than irregular attendees and had higher essay and examination scores. However, differences in overall academic achievement results were not as clear-cut. (Author/MSE)
