Replying to LO29313 --

Dear All,

While I was undertaking studies towards a Graduate Diploma in Occupational
Hygiene, I encountered a very difficult subject - radiation. In fact I
failed the unit at my first attempt. It wasn't until I rewrote the course
notes and handouts into a sensible story, that I was able to get a real
grasp of the concepts. I doubt that the same learning effect would be
derived by anyone simply reading my version. The act of reasoning and
making sense of the glut of material seems important. The act of writing
seems to fix the ideas in memory.

If you are interested:

Best Regards,
Alan Cotterell
