Activity 1

Your Own Learning

Because you have been a learner yourself, it is likely that you will already have a theory of learning of some kind. You have spent many hours observing your own teachers as they taught you.

REFLECT: How did you learn? When did you learn best? What prevented you from learning? What motivated you to learn? How did this vary, depending on time, place and teacher?

WRITE: Write about helpful and unhelpful approaches to learning during your own education. What was positive about those approaches? Did they reflect or express any particular theories of learning?
