Guide Framework - Personalizing Your Academic Toolkit

Enhance Extend Empower

The framework of this guide is designed to help you enhance, extend and empower your learning.

In each section of the guide, you will find strategies that you can ADOPT, APPLY and ADAPT to your studies:

  • To enhance your experience at university, you are encouraged to adopt learning strategies that are simple but effective in helping you manage your time, complete your assignments, prepare for exams, and so on.
  • To extend your learning, you are encouraged to apply those learning strategies so it becomes easier to accomplish the tasks you are expected to complete.
  • To empower your learning, you are encouraged to assess and adapt your learning strategies for effectiveness within your own profession and career.
