Why Do this Course?

  • Be more successful when you study
  • Make your exam preparation more effective
  • Understand the process of learning so you can help others

So much of what we do in today's world involves conveying factual information to others. This communication may be in face to face circumstances, or other ways such as through writing, video or via the internet. Communications can involve words (language), images, body language and other things; and often a combination of different communication channels.  Effective communication is always a two way street, and without a proper knowledge and application there is always scope for ineffective communication. In the context of education, this is ineffective learning. 

There are plenty of ways to make learning more effective but to do that requires an informed effort on the part of the learner, and an application of teaching skill on the part of the teacher. 

This course will develop and strengthen your capacity to learn and help others learn; providing a good foundation for someone who has not studied these things before, and an excellent revision, strengthening knowledge for anyone who has studied learning skills previously.

Who Can this Course Benefit?
