Week 2: Learning from life

Introduction

Last week you saw how learning takes place every day and how it can be formal or informal, accidental or deliberate. You also thought about some of your own learning experiences and how perhaps you learn best.

This week you will explore some more of the learning opportunities that are all around us. Maybe you are starting to think about this already? The key is to recognise these as learning opportunities, and work out how to make the most of them. This includes managing your time well and recognising how your own emotions can influence how you learn.
