Customised learning, by Dr Liz Hare
My exploration of educational matters
developed in part while working as a trainee in addictions. From
the literature on motivational interviewing, I discovered that
people aren’t concerned about the general health risks from
substance use but are interested to hear information
personalised on the basis of their family history, current health
and lifestyle interest in education.
The feedback from our subscribers is that many
of our learners also customise their learning activity, spending
extra time on some modules to follow the suggested links and
references. Such curiosity-driven activity promotes so-called "deep
learning" and has good staying power, as does thinking about how
any new ideas might be put quickly into action.
In response, we have modified our downloadable
certificates so that you can document such activity.
Our module certificates have a new look! You can now record how
long you actually spent completing a module, add notes to explain
the time taken, and even detail how much a module might confirm
your current practice or suggest avenues of change. We look forward
to hearing if you find this new, more customisable, approach
As you can see, we really do listen to what you say. So if you
want anything added or changed the best thing you can do is
let us know so we can do something about it.
