Get together with other students studying your course to read the core material and discuss it.
Reading about your topic will help you in both your understanding of the topic and in developing your own ideas and thoughts.
Study groups can help you meet new people, dedicate time to your reading and learn with fellow students.
The most effective reading is when you know the purpose for why you are reading it. Study groups give structure to your reading and are a supportive environment, allowing the free exchange of ideas and helping you to learn from and with each other.
If you want to put together your own study group, then here are some top tips for doing it:
Below are the times/dates for new study groups which are starting. At the first meeting of the group, your librarian will be there to explain how study groups work. They will then leave you to it and the group members will decide on when and where the following meet ups will be.
During the pilot, we will ask for feedback on how the concept of a study group is working. Look out for Blackboard announcements on this.
