This practical A4 pack contains activities and ideas for teachers and students to learn more about learning. Learning about Learning
is a practical way of teaching important and neglected theories of learning.
The idea is that if teachers and students learn about what learning is and how it happens they understand a greater range of learning possibilities and approaches and improve their learning and teaching skills.
