Workshop 3: Frameworks to enhance autonomous learning
People all over the world talk about students growing independent learning skills - but have few ideas around how to systematically do this. Like many other skills, autonomous learning can be nurtured by the consistent use of a framework that is understood and appreciated by everyone - learners and educators
- What is autonomous learning?
- Why is it an important goal?
- How do we grow autonomous learning skills in ourselves?
- How do we grow autonomous learning skills in learners?
- Be introduced to the Learnlife Stages of Autonomy framework
- Become conversant in how they might adapt the framework to suit their own context
- Understand how ‘soft skills’ can be developed in a sensitive and supportive manner, integrated into everything that is undertaken in the Hub programs
