General Skills

SpannerThis 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.
