To allow participants set learning challenges for themselves for the duration of the course, and to monitor them throughout the process.

Description of the tool

Each participant receives a blank A4 paper shaped like an arrow.
On this paper each participant has to write one or more learning challenges they want to set for themselves for the duration of the course, and assess its difficulty in Kilometres. 1 km being a very easy challenge. 1000 km being a very difficult one.

This exercise will be used again in the middle of the project and at the end in order to understand how far the participants’ learning has reached their goals.
