Learning to learn: Exploring learning

Free statement of participation on completion

In this free course, Learning to learn: Exploring learning, we encourage you to consider two additional perspectives that can illuminate your learning. The first is the perspective that other people you know can provide; the second is the perspective that can be provided by academic theories about learning. We think that these two perspectives can help you prepare for personal change. PLEASE NOTE: this course is currently being reviewed. An updated and improved version of the course can be found here: http://www.open.edu/openlearn/education/succeed-learning/content-section-overview.
