4 Thinking about your own learning
Having thought a little about other people’s experiences and ideas about learning, it’s time now to have a think about how you learn.
Activity 4 Formal or informal?
- Make a note of at least six examples of your own learning that you can think of, in your learning journal.
- Now decide if they are formal or informal. Maybe they are a mixture of the two like this course? Note down your thoughts.
- Finally, for each of the examples, note whether you learned alone, or with others.
Reviewing the different ways that you learn can help you see both how much you have learned already, and the kinds of learning you prefer. The next activity looks at this in a bit more detail.
