Summary and thinking about the lesson next week

This week has all been about the process of asking questions. Asking questions does not come easily to many students, so if you do find it difficult you are certainly not alone. You can practice trying to come up with questions in all sorts of contexts, so that when you arrive at university, you do so with an actively-enquiring mind. This will help you engage with the material and develop your own learning strategy.

This leads into the topic of next week’s lesson: independent study. What you chose to study on your own will develop from questions you ask. The more questions you have, the more you will want to research topics yourself. You will need to read around subjects and work on developing your own knowledge base.

You can check your progress on the course so far. Don’t forget that if you complete the majority of the course you have the opportunity to purchase a Statement of Participation.

Next week you will look at what is meant by independent study and how to be effective in how you read around a subject.
