This course explores academic ideas about the social aspects of learning. If you are studying this course as part of the Learning to learn course, you will have been thinking about what has happened to you in the past and what is going on in your life at the moment. You will also have explored the value of other perspectives on your learning – the views of other people and the ideas in academic theories.
If you are not studying the Learning to learn course, we would recommend that you do this course after working through You and your learning and Exploring learning. In particular, Planning for personal change picks up an issue raised in Exploring learning – that some psychological theories tend to overlook the social aspects of learning.
We hope this will encourage you to find a learning community that will support your learning. This may take the form of a face-to-face group if you happen to be working with other people; for example, in your workplace. Or you could use the Learning to learn Facebook group .
This OpenLearn course provides a sample of level 1 study in Education, Childhood & Youth
