Many students struggle when writing assessments. This is often because they are trying to learn how to use their word processing software at the same time that they are learning the content of a course.
This lesson is broken down into small sections as you build your skills and knowledge.
Learn how to find information using a variety of sources. Once you have information, use referencing software to store your sources, cite the information you have found, and present a list of references.
I will introduce you to various sources, teach you how to use Boolean operators, and embed citations into your work.
Discover the wealth of information you have at your fingertips
Learn how to use your time effectively. It’s amazing how much time we can waste by being disorganised.
A few simple techniques can make a lot of difference, and give you the time to socialise, exercise, and study.
Good time management, enables a work/life blend
We will look at various electronic tools, as well as paper-based methods, to take notes when in-class and when reading books and articles.
Good note-taking makes all the difference when you’re trying to study for exams or compose an essay or report.
Some people prefer electronic notes and others prefer paper. It’s a personal choice, and we will compare the pros and cons of each.
So much choice, but it’s good to compare and contrast.
One tool that is very useful is mindmapping; it allows us to lay out our ideas and plan. It can assist us to see relationships between ideas and concepts. This is particularly useful for those who prefer visual layouts for informatio rather than lists. We will look at electronic and paper methods of mindmapping.
There are several techniques that can assist with planning and writing assessments. Throughout this topic we will look at the various techniques that make assessments far less challenging.
What people are saying
On the 28th June I finally started. I was hooked from Day 1 and threw myself into it. I learned so much and it was perfect timing. I've got the most beautiful reports to submit in my Diploma certificate I'm currently completing.
I'm using Scholar properly and I can reference now too!! Plus One Note - who knew how this would change my life - now I don't have to email myself links to webpages and try to remember why I sent it 😊
As a mature age student who hadn’t studied for years, Julie made my transition into education an easy one.
After studying with Julie through my Graduate Diploma, I now have the confidence to take on my Masters. I was provided with support and regular check-ins as well as opportunities for online and face-to-face catch-ups to make sure I stayed on track. Julie ensures you have a full understanding of the expectations of the course and provides regular examples to help your comprehension throughout your studies.
Julie is a true “teacher” and educator who will help you with tools and resources to take your learning to the next level. If you’re considering launching into some short courses so you can “test the waters” then make sure you have a chat with Julie first. After working with Julie, you’ll be more prepared and empowered to know that anything you take on is possible!
