    Hacking your brain to hack your study

    Hacking your brain to hack your study

    Studying is never easy, but what if we could hack how our brains work to make the process smoother? We could leave behind the one-strategy-fits-all approach and instead tailor our study to suit our strengths instead. Join us this episode as we discuss our personality types and the study techniques that work for us.

    Think it's wishful thinking, or maybe there's some method to this madness?

    Understanding academic integrity with Dr Amanda White

    Understanding academic integrity with Dr Amanda White

    It can be tempting to take shortcuts to get things done as we head into the pointy end of the session. But when is a shortcut actually academic misconduct? Dr Amanda White joins us on this episode to discuss academic integrity, including what it is, how to avoid accidentally doing the wrong thing, and what you can do if you're faced with an allegation of academic misconduct. We'll also talk about ways you, as a student, can promote academic integrity so that everyone benefits.

    If you have some reflections on academic integrity, let us know!
