Study Skills for Masters Level Students is set out as a workbook using exercises that are related to the development of the skills required to make the transition from undergraduate to postgraduate thinking and writing. Questions and activities encourage students to identify the skills that the postgraduate student should possess and to demonstrate an understanding of how those skills are developed.
Topics covered, among others, include:
Developing independent study skills;
Finding and using literature;
How to get published.
The book is easy to use and jargon-free with clearly defined learning goals. Reflection and critical incident analysis are included in order to support independent learning and enquiry, and there are also suggestions for additional reading throughout the book. The book can therefore be used as an independent study tool or by lecturers in workshop settings.
