UniSA - ‘Information-seeking of undergraduate students: Behaviours, feelings, thoughts and actions during academic writing.’

Information literacy and research skills are essential in a global knowledge economy and professional development. Such skills are increasingly seen as an integral part of education for professional practice. This presentation describes a funded study which explored the research process, in particular the information-seeking behaviours, of undergraduate students enrolled in an academic writing class with the eventual aim of developing intervention techniques to improve their ability to evaluate and integrate information into a research assignment. Undertaken in the National Institute of Education, Singapore, the study utilised Kuhlthau’s Information Search Process, a constructivist task-based model of the research process.

Grassroots Team Opportunities

In the lead up to the election, One Community SA are seeking volunteers to engage with the public at events and face-to-face in order to educate the community about school funding issues and have voters pledge their votes for Education. This volunteer work will provide an excellent opportunity for students to advocate for their profession in partnership with the professional associations they may one day join. It will be valuable for the resumes of graduating teachers looking to demonstrate their genuine passion for education to potential employers. It is also an opportunity for students to gain valuable experience in discussing their career choices.

To volunteer, individuals can fill in our form or email me and we will be in contact about opportunities to join our innovative grassroots team.

 Enrolment Advice Service

The School of Education has recently introduced a new and improved enrolment advice service for our Bachelor of Education, Master of Teaching and Bachelor of Sport, Health and Physical Activity students. This service replaces the need for student appointments as our staff can provide more comprehensive enrolment advice in less time.

If you are unsure which topics you should enrol in to meet both your enrolment choices and your degree requirements, simply email us at  and within 2-3 working days our staff will send you a study plan with enrolment advice tailored to suit your needs. Please note that this turnaround time may be extended during peak periods.

We recommend you email this address whenever you have a question about your enrolment or degree progression, rather than our Academic or Professional staff directly, to avoid your email going unanswered if that staff member is unavailable. Emailing us at will ensure your enquiry is addressed as soon as possible.

As always please ensure you provide as much information as you can when contacting our enrolment advice team, as this will help to process your enquiry as quickly and efficiently as possible.
