We are very pleased to announce that our research on students' perspectives and experiences of independent learning is to be launched by the HEA on 2nd December. This includes a free lunch time webinar on 2/12 : https://www.heacademy.ac.uk/research/research-webinars, plus we will be delivering a workshop at the Universities UK conference on Enhancing the student experience on 9th December http://www.universitiesuk.ac.uk/events/Pages/StudentExperience2015.aspx.
We found students from all disciplines were under-prepared for the reality of independent learning in higher education. Many felt overwhelmed by both the volume and type of learning required.
