Wk 7. Critical Thinking and Longer Term Planning


The First Seven Weeks Indoor Maps App has now been discontinued.
For more information on The First Seven Weeks programme, please visit the First 7 Weeks facebook page.

This week will shine a light on the importance of critical thinking as a major element of successfull engagement with learning at UL.

Long Term

We will help get students to think about their longer term engagement with their studies at UL.


We will produce and distrubute a critical thinking checklist that will be useful for students from all disciplines.

Personal Plans

We will help students to start generating their own personal academic plans

Research Talks

There will be postgrad speakers at four faculty-organised events focusing on how students developed their research focus and exploring their research achievements within and across disciplines.


The facebook page will focus on broadening the student awareness of issues and insights beyond their own disciplines.

Exam Preparation

There will also be some sound advice to help students start planning and preparing for exams and other assessments.
