The adoption and inclusion of Student Study-techniques and Learning Development (SSLD) in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) can be a significant developmental strategy for enabling students in their development as life-long learners. SSLD is an academic scheme that shows to be beneficial to students as well as institutions. It creates an engaging learning environment for students to reflect on what they have been taught, develop fresh ideas, and enhance their capacity to learn. SSLD offers a structured approach for students to successfully adapt to the rigorous demands and academic standards they will encounter in HEIs. Thus, this paper suggests that HEIs embrace this pedagogical approach fully. However, to adopt and ensure the value of SSLD, institutions need to foster its role so as to improve students’ learning experiences and academic achievements. Consequently, this paper presents an overview of SSLD, its positive impacts, and concludes with insights concerning strategies to promote SSLD in HEIs.

My research interests lie in the broad areas of operations research and learning development, and their innovative impact in any field or sector. I am particularly involved in developing strategies and models in collaboration with recognized bodies and institutions that are aimed at focusing on the requirements of users, students and concerned workers. In addition, I contribute to the institution’s external links by designing and providing tailor-made teaching sessions for work-based learners within and outside the institution’s environment.
