Week 6: Wider perspectives

Introduction

Welcome to Week 6 of Succeed with learning. This week, you are going to focus on some theories about learning, think about their relevance to your own situation and develop your note-taking skills further. Like getting feedback from others, theories of learning offer a range of other perspectives which encourage wider thinking about learning and how to make the most of any opportunities that present themselves.

Learning about other people’s perspectives and ideas is also a major part of studying at degree level, and it is one you have already started to do on this course. So, you are well on your way!
