Developing the expert learner

An  expert learner

When learners develop their ability to learn, they also develop skills that they can use every day for the rest of their lives. They learn how to find new information, solve problems, co-operate with others, and much more besides. Learning to learn means that they can learn more quickly, so you as a teacher will benefit too. To explore in more depth what the concept may mean for you and your learners, look at the Developing the expert learner web resources. You will find:

  • inspiration in the form of real life examples
  • continuing professional development activities to get you and your colleagues started
  • links to relevant resources to interrogate further.
