    Abstract

    Final year undergraduate students are subject to learning pressures due to the amount, level and variety of reading they are required to undertake in relation to taught sessions and assignments.This paper outlines a group resource-based learning approach designed to facilitate a deeper more critical understanding, while at the same time teaching students the importance of making effective study notes in a time-pressured context. It is concluded that the teaching approach developed is useful in promoting a more critical understanding, but that final year students still require guidance in the shaping of study notes that summarise key items of knowledge and understanding. Attention is also drawn to the role that the core knowledge and professional values of the Higher Education Academy can play in assessing the validity of a teaching approach.
