The classical model of higher education studies is the sink-or-swim model, where some students are born with certain skills or inherit them and become swimmers, whereas students without good study strategies will not be able to keep up with the teaching in higher education and ultimately fail (they sink). This is no longer a valid model, as it cannot handle the large amount of students enrolling despite poor study strategies. The presentation discusses how students can become swimmers in the context of higher education through teaching them study strategy, thus enabling them to take more responsibility for their own progress. In addition to explaining and showing examples of good study strategies, the focus is on the teaching of good study habits and the ICT tools required for achieving good results in doing so.
