ABSTRACT

One of the most important skills you will learn at university is the ability to ‘know how to know’, which is developed by ‘learning how to learn’. In many cases, ‘knowing how to know’ is considered more important than the substantive content of your course and sets you apart from those without higher education. It is more than just having the ability to look up appropriate sources of information; it allows you to think about those sources, to delve beyond the surface to understand a text, issue or situation more deeply, to identify connections and relationships between ideas and to offer informed decisions about the content you are reviewing.
