U05: Learning to Learn: Preparing Students for a Rapidly Changing World

An important role of tertiary education is to prepare students for a rapidly changing world. On top of professional knowledge and skills and generic competences, PolyU finds it more important to develop and enhance students’ ability to learn to learn. ‘Learning to learn’ (L2L) is more than just learning. It covers a range of skills in multiple domains supporting student development in understanding themselves as learners, managing their learning, devising strategies that are effective and appropriate for themselves, finding ways to improve their learning outcomes and experiences across different situations and ultimately becoming confident and effective life-long self-learners. A framework with a two-pronged approach (programme-embedded and student self-managed) to strengthen the L2L element in the programme and subject curriculum has been proposed. Eventually, all undergraduate programmes will incorporate L2L components into their curriculum to support students’ L2L development across the entire period of their study.

To prepare for the implementation of the L2L framework in the 2021/22 academic year, a two-year project was launched in 2018 to pilot some contextualized activities and materials with First Year students in Freshman Seminars of three Faculties. The pilot experience provides useful information about the process and the support that programmes, faculty members and students need for L2L development.
