2.8 Making the framework your own
If there was a simple way to improve our own learning, we would all be geniuses by now. What this key skills approach tries to show is that learning is a complex process that draws on many skills and can be made more effective by becoming aware of what you are doing, how you are doing it and how well you are doing it. Once you are aware of what's going on, you can start to change things to suit your own learning style and the demands of the task or assignment you have to tackle.
The next step is to learn how to manage all the resources at your disposal in order to get the best results. Here we invite you to consider how you might adapt the framework – strategic planning, monitoring and evaluating – to suit your own approach to learning and to different sorts of learning tasks.
