Reading Strategies

Reading for university courses can be time-consuming and difficult, and it can easily become overwhelming if you don’t think about how best to approach the task. Whether your lecturer has given you readings to do or you have located texts through research for your assignments, this course will give you strategies you can use to get the most out of your reading.
