(re)Freshers Orientation | Being a confident learner - 29th September 2021

(re)Freshers Orientation | Being a confident learner

Join us from 11am to 12pm

Many students reach the end of their first module and say that they have developed confidence, but it is possible to feel confident in your learning from day one! In this session we talk to students, module chairs and associate lecturers about how the learning process is designed to enable you to develop your skills and work with feedback. Feeling confident can come from understanding what you need to develop, where you are succeeding, and realising that you can achieve things you might not have thought possible.
