How Do I Learn Best

The training activity took place
in Amedolea Italy
organised by Pame Ambro
27 Oct - 2 Nov 2011

Aims & objectives

The need to be aware of oneʼs own learning is more then ever relevant since learners are expected nowadays to take responsibility for their own learning; to decide themselves what and how to learn. Being aware of your own learning is a crucial element of the learning to learn competence.
The ʻHow Do I Learn Bestʼ training course wanted to explore all these questions around learning in order to help participants to raise their awareness about their own learning and to improve their competences as facilitators of the learning of others.
The general aim was to motivate and inspire the participants to develop their learning to learn competence.
The specific objectives of the training course are:
- raising awareness of participants about themselves as learner and facilitators of learning - exploration of various ways of approaching learning
- exploring different learning approaches and styles
- helping participants to develop a personal approach to (facilitating) learning
