This sub-track is concerned with key general-purpose skills which can have a significant impact on all aspects of learning. For example, problem-solving techniques can be applied within a whole range of contexts, from the simple, such as how to locate specific information, to the more complex, for example, how to carry out a research project or write a book. Because such skills have this wide applicability they are especially valuable and worth developing. Other, more specific learning skills will be found on the Student Learning and PhD Research sub-tracks.
The following are the particular skills which are included on the General Skills sub-track:
- Techniques for tackling problems
- How to improve the power of your memory
- Organising and making the best use of your time
- Switching on the light bulb!
- How computers can help you
