The key aim of the project was to help establish independent learning in new students and to give them a sound start in the skills required to be independent learners.

An initial evaluation of new students’ understanding of independent learning was undertaken through questionnaires and focus groups. The project then developed academic skill development modules within the School of Education based upon these results and focus groups held with staff. The modules have been successfully used in the first semester of year one to assist students in making the academic transition to University work. One of the key elements that the modules aim to develop is students’ ability to reflect upon their work. This is developed in the modules through a structured reflective journal within webCT which is built upon in other modules on the programmes. The reusable learning objects and module webCT section have been adapted and used throughout the College of Social Sciences
