Students' learning experience and academic development can be impeded by low resilience, a limited cultural experience, minimal English language skills and a lack of confidence needed for independent learning. If not tackled directly, these factors can have profound implications for student retention, progression and achievement. It is therefore important to develop learning strategies to support student learning, in particular, strategies pertinent to enhancing language and communication skills, independent learning and engagement.

This paper focuses on how a strategy based on process documentation was implemented and developed across different types of modules from Foundation, Undergraduate and Postgraduate levels. Process documentation refers to a collection of varied documents used in the design, development and production process which track and monitor decision-making, creative thinking, experimentation and problem-solving.
