8 Building your coach developer 101 guide
The main discussion points from this session that you might share and discuss with colleagues are described in Table 1 below.
|Practices and ideas||Description|
|6. Categorising learning||Learning can be classified into formal, informal and non-formal learning, although it is not always easy to allocate learning situations neatly into one of these categories.|
|7. Social constructivist theories of learning||A collection of theories that explain how people construct knowledge through their experiences. This is a social, collaborative and active process that takes place within and through relationships between people.|
|8. Filtering processes||A method that describes how coaches adopt, adapt or reject new forms of knowledge and practice through two filters: a personal filter and a context filter.|
|9. Adult learning principles||The suggestion that adults learn differently to children (‘andragogy’). Adult learning motivations are distinct and there is a need for the purpose of their learning experiences to be made explicit.|
|10. Unlearning||It is claimed that to learn you must sometimes unlearn existing knowledge so that it does not impede the potential to learn something new.|
