This drawing shows a page from a notebook, with three headings and a simple table, presented as an example of the different approaches to learning that people use for different purposes. From left to right, the headings read: ‘Example of my learning’, ‘What sort of approach (deep, surface, strategic)?’, and ‘How might I use another approach?’

In the first column, there are two entries: ‘Bus times from Milton Keynes Central to The Open University’ and ‘Reading for Succeed with learning’.

Alongside the first entry (bus times), in the second column is written ‘surface’, and in the third column is written, ‘Not sure’.

Alongside the second entry (Reading for Succeed with learning), in the second column is written ‘Strategic’, and in the third column is written ‘Could use deep approach if I explored links with other aspects of my life’.
