New title by JCU authors: Psychology

Dr Agnes Au, A/Prof. Marie Caltabiano and Dr Nerida Caltabiano (Department of Psychology)
Learning Strategies, Performance Indicators and University Student Satisfaction: What can psychosocial variables tell us?

The research papers collected in this book are pioneering contributions to understanding what leads to student satisfaction in a university setting. The papers provide insights into:
- Why students persevere with their studies
- Self-efficacy and coping styles that students engage in
- The role that locus of control, self-efficacy and trait hope play in student satisfaction
- Time management issues
- Study and employment management.

These investigations result in significant research findings and highlight some of the issues that confront students and what areas could be a focus to improve student satisfaction during their time at tertiary institutions.

Learning Strategies, Performance Indicators and University Student Satisfaction: What can psychosocial variables tell us? will be available in both the Cairns and Townsville libraries in the near future.
