Study Skills

Study skills :

Study skills encompass a broad range of tactics and strategies that ultimately allow students to effectively learn, organise and recall new information. Although children are often expected to develop study skills naturally, research indicates that many students exhibit study skill deficits and require explicit instruction to acquire and appropriately use study skills.
Updated !  [Encyclopedia of Child Behaviour and Development]

Study Skills cover multiple areas from note taking to exam preparation, time management to listening skills, stopping procrastination to getting more from lectures and lessons, understanding your learning style to increasing effectiveness through to writing better essays. These make up an area capable of significant improvement via a clearer understanding of what to do or not do. Simple changes can bring large improvements.

Most tertiary bodies offer advice and support in the area of study skills development. Check with your university or other body.

There is no single method for enhancing your study skills. Look to take the best of what is offered so you get the best result.

This page provides access to information on all areas in the scope of study skills. Some target specific topics. These include Learning Styles, Time Management, specific methods, Assessing Your Study Skills, Bad Habits and parental advice sites. Others are portals to multi-topic areas. They come from Australia and overseas, from schools, universities and other sources.
