In response to my last post my friend Michael Ambjorn let me know about an interesting evening event about personalised learning. It’s in Chelmsford on October 9th. Here’s the theme:
Dr West’s theme is that it seems obvious that the more learning is tailored to the needs and interests of the individual, the more effective it will be. Education providers are meeting this challenge through modularisation, new combinations and new methods of delivery. In the long run, a radical individualism will affect the concept of knowledge as a social construct and we may come to regret fostering a pic’n’mix approach to education.
I’m pleased to see that the format is conversational. For myself, I quite like the notion of pic’n’mix in education and would enjoy the dialogue that is promised.
I’m busy that evening but it sounds fun.
