JumpStart Your Learning: Understanding the Difference

Is there a Difference?

Before you begin, consider the following:

  • Is learning in university the same as learning in high school?
    • If so, how are they the same? 
    • If not, how are they different?
  • What does it mean to be an academic scholar?
  • What do you think an academic scholar does?
  • What does it mean to be a member of a scholarly community? 

Listen to Katherine who provides some insight.

Note: This video is about academic scholarship at an American university so some of the terminology used is American. The message being communicated, however, applies to all first-year university students regardless of country/origin.
