Transcript of "Mauricio.mortera.slides"

  1. 1.  An adult learner is described, according to education literature, as an autonomous individual (Selman, 2001) capable of identifying his own learning need ands planning, carrying out, and assessing his own learning activities (Sork, 2000).  (Nowless, 1970) describes adult learner: As being self-directed, as a receiver of experiences and turning them into a resource for learning, as being motivated to learn in response to the tasks of his/her social roles.
  2. 2. We define autonomy as:  An internal quality of the individual.  A matter of degree.  A quality which can develop, and be deliberated developed. We also recognize autonomy trough what people think or do in the real world (context). It does not have to be necessarily individualistic and it is different from isolation.
  3. 3. The formal definition of learning describes the process as “a relatively permanent change in behavior based on an individual´s interactional experience with its environment”
  4. 4. Moves from dependency to selfdirectedness.  Accumulates experiences that become resources for learning.  Is motivated to learn with real life tasks or problems.  Increases competences to achieve his/her full potential.  Prefers to participate in perfomancecentred learning activities. 
  5. 5.      Learner becomes more critical and reflexive. Learner gains much more from education. Learner becomes a more successful independent student. Learner is able to manage his/her time according to the needs. The more autonomous your learning is, the more you take control of your own learning.
  6. 6. Dealing with lack of time.  Sometimes learner does not feel confident about his/her own learning.  Sometimes the learner does not know how to start his/her own learning because of the need of some guide lines.  Learner becomes responsible for not doing his/her work. 
