How to Study by Joan Turner
Book Description'This book is a must-read for all students trying to grapple their way through and somehow 'finish college" - Sharada Prahladrao, The Decan Herald Any student can improve their learning in higher education if they want to, and the aim of this guide is to help them along this route, not by claiming there is only one right way to do things but by building awareness of different approaches, attitudes, and strategies. Key to this is the notion of active learning which is highlighted throughout the book with the acronym ASCERTAIN whose individual letters signal a range of different strategies and attitudes relevant in different contexts. Throughout, there is an awareness that among the different cultures students participate in, academic culture has its own set of values which academic staff tend to take for granted, but which students may need to have a greater awareness of, and build into their thinking and working.

This book tdiscusses why issues of language in higher education are routinely marginalised, despite the internationalisation of universities. It locates the construction of rhetorical norms and values for academic writing within wider cultural practices and power relations and observes the transformative dynamic of intercultural communication.
