Academic writing

You should by now have a whole new appreciation of the learning process, and some strategies which you can use to enhance your learning. Take the opportunity over the next couple of weeks to apply these wherever possible to your learning in other areas. You'll probably find that some of these strategies work for you, and others do not. It's all part of the journey.

This week, it's time to start learning about Academic writing.

Week 5

This week the topics scheduled are
  • Approaches to learning
  • Introduction to principles of sustainability
Due to delays on the part of one of the participants of this course, Introduction to principles of sustainability will be delayed until further notice. The hand-in date for Task 6 will also be extended.

So, continue with the Approaches to learning module. This should be finished by the end of the week, and Task 5 is also due this week.
