5.3.2 What Have I Learned About My Knowledge?

It is worth spending time thinking about what you have learned from the course. This course has presented you with challenging ideas and a wide range of perspectives. You have been asked to apply them to your own learning for change. As you look back over these, and at your responses to the activities, you will be reminded of the ground you have covered.

It may be helpful to think briefly about the perspectives that were the focus of each unit:

  • Unit 1 introduced the unit outline and the three main perspectives in Learning to Learn.
  • Unit 2 focused on your perspective as the basis for gathering evidence about your knowledge, skills, and qualities.
  • Unit 3 focused on the two remaining perspectives—other people and academic theory—as the basis for your learning.
  • Unit 4 focused on how you could move forward by developing your vision and action plan.

As you think about what you have learned, you will probably remember some themes and ideas from the course more easily than others. Perhaps there was an idea or way of thinking about change that you found particularly interesting or challenging. Perhaps something challenged you to look at yourself, or the world, in a different way. The next activity will help you focus on what you have learned from the unit materials.

You may remember that in part 1 of the Qualities, Knowledge and Skills Audit Challenge, you began to look at how you go about acquiring knowledge. The focus was on how you do this and what is important to you; you were encouraged to let facts look after themselves. On the basis that you will develop precisely the knowledge that you need, we suggest that everyone is good at knowledge-building—it is not the preserve of just a few clever people.
