Study skills or, as my colleague Marcia Heiman, co-author of a book with the title Learning to Learn: Thinking Skills for the 21st Century nicely puts it, learning to learn skills, are important to all learners, and are especially needed by adults who plan or are enrolled in post-secondary learning or training. In this thread we can explore all learning to learn skills, ranging from: where to study, how to study, how to study using Internet-accessible computers and digital devices, how to learn new vocabulary, active listening, note-taking, reading between the lines, preparing for tests, how to reward oneself for unexciting but necessary practice, how to keep focused, how to persist when the learning is difficult, and more.
Is this an important topic for you? For your students? How do you address learning to learn skills now? What works for your students?
