Study Diary

Study diary provides a way to encourage students to identify developing deficiencies in their learning. It helps students to develop their metacognitive skills.

Students are asked to keep a diary, usually weekly, concerning their learning. This needs to be much more than merely recording a list of topics being studied and should identify how new topics are related to what is already known and any difficulties that the student is experiencing. Recognizing such difficulties is a good start, but unless the student now takes steps to remedy them, little will be achieved. Students should, therefore, go on to identify the steps they are now intending to take to overcome any deficiencies identified.
