The eight learning events PDF Print E-mail
Written by Neil Evans, PhD study   

Quality education requires the right combination of learning events, which constitutes a good learning strategy (LeClercq and Poumay, 2005), this in turn should promote meaningful learning through the acquisition of knowledge or skills obtained by study or experience (Oxford English Dictionary; 2009). LeClercq and Poumay (2005) proposed a theoretical reference model of eight learning events (see figure 1.1 page 6) as they sought to describe and conceive the diversity of learning / teaching experiences and their underpinning psychological theories (LeClercq and Poumay, 2005:1).
