This online module was produced in 2007 by Dr Lauren Williams, School of Health Sciences, and Associate Professor John Germov, School of Humanities and Social Science, and was funded by the University of Newcastle's First Year Experience program. The goal of the module is to provide a self-paced online learning experience for students to develop effective academic skills. The content of the online module draws upon the book:
Lauren Williams & John Germov, 2001, Surviving First Year Uni, Allen & Unwin, Sydney.
The book is available from University libraries and as an e-book from ebooks.com.
We acknowledge the support and assistance of the University’s Centre for Teaching and Learning, our research assistant Jodie Thompson, the many students who provided feedback on the module, as well as our students who originally contributed to the content of the book upon which this module is based.
We also thank Belinda Allen for the e-learning design work and the University of Newcastle web team.
