The GST 107 course highlights that the learning and improvement process never ends. When you think you have your note-taking technique honed to a smoothly functioning routine, you find it has become too mechanical – you take too many notes, or the wrong notes; or you encounter a book that defeats your routine. Or you begin to think that you’ve cracked it with writing, but you come to an essay that somehow won’t come right, or a tutor who criticises the very things you thought you were good at. At times like these, when your studies knock you back, you’ll find it useful to return to the GST 107 book and revisit basic principles.
GST 107 is often looked as a course, but actually is meant to be a guide for students with a serious interest in long term development of their learning and study skills. It is not a source of quick fixes and instant remedies. It assumes a willingness to invest time in working on exercises and reflecting on them.
