This two-credit course assists new students in understanding the process and expectations of studying with Global University in the distance education setting. It provides an overview of academic policies and guides students in developing skills in library usage, creative and critical thinking, reading and writing, study and note taking, and time management. Students identify personal learning styles to increase effective study practices and learn to make connections between personal views and other worldviews. They are introduced to how Global University courses are designed, become familiar with how to prepare assignments, and learn what to expect from three-credit courses.
Global University does not necessarily agree with all the views represented in the resources in this guide. These are provided for the student to contrast and compare with the Biblical text and ideas presented in the Global University IST.
