Workshop by Prof Confessore on Learning Autonomy

Learning Autonomy and Self-directed Learning (JUNE 5, 2010)


by Prof Gary Confessore

This is a special event organized by LBS, specially for parents and individuals.  Prof Confessore gave a talk last year and opened us to the idea of self-directed learning (SDL), an ideal very close to us. SDL allows learners to be autonomous learners, allowing them greater opportunity to explore their true potential.  Do register early to ensure a place.

Gary J. Confessore, Ed.D. is Professor Emeritus of Higher Education Administration, George Washington University, Washington. He is an international leader in the field of autonomous learning.  In addition to serving as the Chief Academic Officer of three US colleges over the course of his career, he has published extensively in the fields of self-directed learning and learner autonomy.  We are honoured to have  Prof Confessore (profile here) conduct this special workshop specially for parents to help us  understand and guide our children to be autonomous learners.

The objectives of this workshop:

a. understand and appreciate the value of learning autonomy and self-directed learning

b. impart skills and tools to help parents / educators understand their children learning styles

c. help develop approaches for these kids

d. other useful knowledge

This is a “cannot miss” program conducted by the leading minds in this field!
