School to University transition - Undergraduate learning approaches


This article looks at an investigation into the various approaches used by university students to learn introductory chemistry concepts during self-directed study. The context of the investigation is the transition from school to university that many students find challenging, not least because the approach to learning changes so radically. It was written by David Read and is from the Royal Society of Chemistry magazine Education in Chemistry
