FW: Students' perspectives and experiences of independent learning

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.
