This space is here to house the stories of how learners learn in higher ed. Below is a list to choose from for learners to write about how they develop or use that skill.
It has been cultivated from the open textbook from the University of Saskatchewan entitled University Success. A wonderful open resource that we hope can help springboard learners themselves into sharing their take on these skills and strategies.
It is a list of suggested topics. You are free to choose your own if you’d like to contribute.
- Thinking of the end result. Making career goals/plans
- Getting motivated, staying motivated, manufacturing motivation
- Managing time, tasks, work to be done
- Listening for learning
- Reading for learning
- Writing for learning
- Note-taking/ collecting notes
- Collaboration (in studying, group work, projects)
- Critical thinking
- Other learning strategies
- Test preparation, test taking
- Interacting with peers/instructors
- Social aspects
Again, this is a springboard for you to find something to write about if you’re interested in becoming an Open Learner Patchbook “Patcher”. If another topic comes to mind, you’re free to use that one!
