Student Academic Development

We are presenting learning development workshops to students in the classroom in collaboration with the lecturer  present. This enable reinforcement and integration and contribute to increased retention and throughput rates.

 

Seminars that are offered regularly:

  • Time management – the focus is on practical time management strategies that will help students to cope better with their academic workload, how to balance their various roles successfully, using a time-schedule and to organise their lives in advance.
  •  Study strategies – support students to reconsider how they approach their studies towards implementing a study process that will include pre-reading, being active when attending class (focus on active listening and note taking), making summaries and learn the work (memorising techniques).
