Cradle Coast, Hobart, Launceston
The student contribution amount for this unit is fully subsidised and therefore not payable by the student.
This unit provides underpinning skills, theories, techniques, and strategies to prepare you for University-level study and to understand yourself as a learner. You will be introduced to concepts of self-management and relevant practical skills that can be applied effectively in other units. You will explore concepts such as strengths-based learning, engagement and flow, motivation, work/life balance, resilience strategies, critical thinking, and work styles. In addition, you will learn and utilise practical skills such as reflective writing, preparing oral presentations, productivity, transferable skills, goal setting, research methods, career investigation, expository writing, mind mapping and effective study techniques.
The overarching aim of this unit is to provide you with the recognition of your strengths and skills, strategies to develop confidence as a student and to be successful in your future university studies.
