PTS Guide: PTS002 Strength and Success

The aim of the Preparation for Tertiary Success or PTS libguide is to provide support to you throughout your personal learning journey.

Strength and Success

What is resilience?

“Do not judge me by my success, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.”

- Nelson Mandela

Students will develop resilience in life and learning through identifying Indigenous role models of strength and success in the recent past and in the present. Students will analyse the characteristics of strength and success from different perspectives, then move to identify, research and talk with Indigenous students/professionals who have been successful in learning within a tertiary environment. Research focuses on successful and resilient learning strategies and identifying barriers experienced by other tertiary learners. 

Indigenous Role Models

Charles Darwin University acknowledges the traditional custodians across the lands on which we live and work, and we pay our respects to Elders both past and present.
