Those leading study skills sessions will wish to establish their own sets of objectives for their programme. Clear objectives are important as they indicate to students a particular approach to skills development, even a conceptualisation of what a skill is and how it might be ‘achieved’ or ‘developed’. The objectives for the programme suggested in this book are: to train students in essential academic and other related learning skills within the context of their course of study, vocational pathway, or other meaningful structure; to locate study skills within a developmental model; to facilitate students’ understanding of learning development as an evolving process rather than something which is accomplished within a single session or even a series of sessions; to train students to evaluate their own needs and achievements more capably; to enable students to become more self-managing and self-reliant, capable of taking responsibility for their own learning and addressing their own learning needs; to encourage students to appreciate proactive learning — rather than to see themselves as semi-passive recipients of information a feedback.
