Using Musostudy In Your sessions

The Musostudy Handbook has 2 parts. Part 1 is a description. of the Musostudy Model, how to use it and the theories behind it. Part 2 is The Musostudy Toolkit for Tutors.

The Musostudy toolkit is a resource of teaching and learning activities (TLAs) to help tutors put the model into practise.  It is a helping hand to show how to enable low academic-ability students to achieve module mastery by embedding the necessary skills into their modules. 

It contains advice and information on how to plan a module and structure sessions plus over 100 teaching and learning activities aimed at embedding essential skills into sessions.


All Musostudy TLAs (plus others added by teachers) are in this searchable directory. Click the orange button to search.
