Type: Case Study
The compilers of this case study wanted to see how effective tutors are in teaching and developing these skills and how they could improve our practice and make any changes in the light of our findings. Many modules develop study skills individually, some context bound, others more generic and interdisciplinary. However, they wanted to look at group working skills which they felt had not received the same attention. They wanted to challenge assumptions and prejudices about teaching and learning, especially the assumption that "we teach ergo they learn."
