Independent study requires a different attitude and approach to learning: it places greater responsibility on the student, aided by teaching staff. This gives students freedom to make their own informed choices, but it also encourages them to become proactive in their thinking, good time managers, motivated, and reflective.
This emphasis on self-directed or ‘independent learning’ can be difficult at first, but the strategies presented in this workshop are designed to aid students in making the transition.
This workshop is open to all current registered University of Sheffield students. Please bring your UCard with you to the workshop.
