Learning Autonomy and Self-directed Learning (JUNE 5, 2010)
REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED, APOLOGIES
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.
