Ensuring your professional, academic and personal success at university can be challenging. In this module you will prepare to meet that challenge by engaging in a series of mini-academic challenges, each one helping you to develop skills that are critical to success. You will work with fellow students to integrate digital media tools, along with traditional methods, for critical thinking, creative problem investigation, collaboration, and creativity. You will learn effective strategies for responding to lecture content, participating in seminar discussions and working in peer groups. These skills will be applicable across the arts and humanities. While you develop these skills and understanding, you will also learn the ways that the university community supports your efforts through the variety of services available to students, including the library, careers service, study centre and student union.
