Self-study is the process of learning independently, without the guidance of a teacher or instructor. It involves setting goals, finding resources, learning and evaluating progress. Reflection is the process of sharing the information learned with others so that they too can enjoy the fruits of the learner’s self-learning.
Self-study and reflection are important components of the lifelong learning approach.
Here are a few ways to incorporate self-study and reflection into learning:
Make a variety of online resources available to participants, such as readings, videos, and quizzes, that they can access on their own. This allows them to review the material at their own pace and on their own schedule.
Assign self-study tasks such as readings, case studies, and exercises for participants to complete while learning. This allows them to practice the concepts they are learning in a real-world context.
Encourage participants to keep a journal throughout the learning process to reflect on their learning and the material covered.
Incorporate group reflection activities, such as group discussions, where participants can share their thoughts and insights with their peers.
Encourage participants to regularly evaluate their own performance and progress throughout the learning process, and to identify areas where they need to improve.
Encourage participants to build a professional network by connecting with other participants, instructors, and industry experts. This can provide valuable opportunities for learning and reflection.
Encourage participants to develop a personal action plan to apply the learned concepts to their own professional development.
