Teaching, Learning and Study Skills

A Guide for Tutors

by Tom Burns, Sandra Sinfield

Series: SAGE Study Skills Series

'This is an essential guide for anyone aspiring to teach in Higher Education in the UK. Not just because it is packed with practical tips and even lecture notes but crucially because it explains the nature of university teaching in the wake of the 'widening participation' agenda... In summary this book is well worth reading' - Educate Journal

This is a book for tutors, lecturers and teachers in further and higher education, who need to teach their students how to study, learn and communicate effectively. Based around the same techniques and contents as Tom and Sandra's book Essential Study Skills, which is itself based on many years experience of teaching and mentoring students in higher education, this book is intended to work with traditional and non-traditional students.

The material will be suitable for institutions concerned with widening participation; with student retention; with quality enhancement; with equal opportunities and with professional and staff development.


SAGE Study Skills are essential study guides for students of all levels. From how to write great essays and succeeding at university, to writing your undergraduate dissertation and doing postgraduate research, SAGE Study Skills help you get the best from your time at university.
