Cottrell argues that critical thinking makes sense to the student if it is contextualised. Lecturers can encourage critical thought through the careful structuring of information and set exercises. [7] For me its an ongoing reference text, the exercises are also quite effective for skills development...

Skills for Success. Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan. p.61. ISBN 978-0-230-57305-5. Stella Cottrell was appointed as Director of the Lifelong Learning Centre (LLC) in July 2005. On her appointment the University of Leeds reported her as saying, "This is absolutely the right time for the University to be looking at its social inclusion agenda, and to build on its current innovatory work with adult learners."

In 2011, the University of Bedfordshire announced that an honorary doctorate was to be awarded to Stella Cottrell "in recognition of her 'outstanding contribution to lifelong learning and widening participation'". [20] On the announcement of this award, Stella summarised her work with the Lifelong Learning Centre: "I have always worked to create good educational opportunities for those who, for whatever reason, either underachieved in the past or didn't get a chance to study in higher education."

Cottrell sees personal development planning (PDP) as a confluence of personal improvement, greater academic performance, and planning to achieve goals, "whether academic, personal or professional". [14] For Cottrell, it is important that all students regularly reflect on how their course and extracurricular activities relate to their future ambitions: "Linking PDP, the programme of study and the student's future is especially important for younger students, who are less likely to have thought about careers."

Stella sees reflection as a central component of study skills. Since Higher Education involves more autonomous learning than students may have experienced previously, they need to become responsible for reflecting on their own progress, strengths and areas in need of development. [11] Examples of reflective questions include: Good book, especially for people that are just starting university and who may need a good "tutorial" for learning a solid reading and writing method. People later in their careers may find it a bit basic but you can consider it as a sort of reference.David, Gardner. "The Lifelong Learning Centre: New Beginnings". University of Leeds . Retrieved 30 June 2011. The benefits and importance of social inclusion within the higher education system is a common theme in Stella Cottrell's writing. In an article written for Times Higher Education, she argued that "A variety of needs has been made manifest by larger class sizes, working students, broader social and international participation, the requirements of students with disabilities and better understanding of individual learning preferences." [17] I read this for my Commentary of texts class and, even though it has provided me with more information, I thought it would be more centered in the analysis of literary texts, which is not. It is a general text book for students of all types, and it's more focused on research work.
