Filming underway for Study Smart online course

Study Smart online course

Study Smart: Your Essential Guide for University is an online, pre-arrival course which is being created especially for new Reading students. It aims to ease students' transition to higher education.  Filming is currently underway for the short videos that will form part of the course. 

The Study Smart course will be launched in August 2017 for all new Part 1 undergraduates, with a 3 ‘week’ structure covering essential aspects of university study:

  1. Academic Integrity 
  2. Communicating at University 
  3. Independent Learning

Our increasingly diverse undergraduate intake means that we must recognise the varied educational cultures experienced by different students prior to taking up their studies at Reading. 

We are also becoming more aware of the widening gap between expected approaches to learning at school/college and at university. All of this means that we need to be more proactive in supporting our students’ transition to learning in higher education. 

The Study Smart course is a key part of this, giving new students a shared understanding of the principles and expectations of studying at university, and welcoming them into the learning community here at Reading. 

For more information, please read the post ‘Our new undergraduates will be Studying Smarter!’ at the Engage in Teaching and Learning blog.
