What happens when we learn? Adventures in Learning offers a framework in which the intuitions of individual teachers have been synthesised into a broader understanding of how learning happens. It suggests a holistic model, which strives to integrate a number of learning theories. 'Adventures in Learning' uses the metaphorical notion of the Learner's Journey, to discuss how learning happens over time.
The learner is the 'hero' of the adventure, who - having been 'called to action' - travels on an exciting but sometimes arduous journey from the 'ordinary world', towards the ultimate reward of independent learning and self-development.
