Description - Teaching, Learning and Study Skills by Tom Burns

This is a book for tutors, lecturers and teachers in further and higher education, who need to teach their students how to study, learn and communicate effectively. Based around the same techniques and contents as the tutors' earlier book Essential Study Skills (SAGE 2003) which is itself based on many years experience of teaching and mentoring students in higher education, this book is intended to work with traditional and non-traditional students. The material will be suitable for institutions concerned with widening participation; with student retention; with quality enhancement; with equal opportunities and with professional / staff development.
