About the Author:

In a previous life Tom Burns led the Hainault Action Group, setting up adventure playgrounds for young people and devising Community Events and Festivals for the local community. Tom has always been interested in theatre and the role of theatre in teaching and learning; whilst still a student at Essex University he set up and ran the first ever International Dario Fo Festival – with academic symposium, theatre workshops for students and local people – and full dramatic performances by the Fo-Rame theatre troupe of The Tiger’s Tale and The Boss’s Funeral.

 

Tom is a Senior Lecturer in Learning Development actively involved with the Association for Learning Development in HE and the LearnHigher Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning . Working in the Centre for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching at London Metropolitan University, along with Sandra Sinfield he develops teaching and learning resources, including the launch of the Get Ahead student conferences – a programme of events designed to promote student success that are run by and for students – and their ‘Tell us the secret of your success’ project, which produced a whole range of creative prod­ucts including a website built by students passing on their study secrets and a student video, ‘The Z–A of university’.

Review:

'An outstanding book which enables learners to actively identify, reflect and develop their 'skills' to enable them to succeed as life-long learners. The authors present the 'how to' alongside the 'what' of study skills to enable continuous personal development, in an accessible style.'--Di Turgoose

An outstanding handbook which enables learners to actively identify, reflect and develop their 'skills' to enable them to succeed as life-long learners. The authors present the 'how to' alongside the 'what' of study skills to enable continuous personal development, in an accessible style.
--Di Turgoose (12/21/2015)

A great book to keep close to you while you develop during your degree. You're not expected to be perfect after years of practice, let alone after a single term in your fresher year. This book helps you to understand that, yet at the same time helps you strive to bring out your best at all times. (review of 3rd edition)
