  • Key skill assessment: improving your own learning and performance
Description
  • Learning new skills is what makes us human but can we improve how we go about learning new things in new situations? Learning how to learn can help you to understand what works for you and what doesn't when you set out to learn new skills, either for work, your education, training or everyday life. In this free course, Key skill assessment: Improving your own learning and performance, you will learn to recognise, use and adapt your skills confidently and effectively in different situations and contexts.<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/education/key-skill-assessment-improving-your-own-learning-and-performance/content-section-0" /> First published on Mon, 07 Mar 2016 as <a href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/education/key-skill-assessment-improving-your-own-learning-and-performance/content-section-0">Key skill assessment: Improving your own learning and performance</a>.

  • <p>This key skill is about helping you understand how you learn; think about how you can improve your own learning and performance, and consider how you might generalise the principles and processes for future learning.</p><p>Improving your learning and performance could be considered to be a &#x2018;meta-skill’, that is the skill of learning how to learn. This course, then, is a little different from the other skills courses because improving your own learning and performance is not a separate option that you can choose to concentrate on or not – it is the basis of the three-stage framework of developing a strategy, monitoring progress and evaluating performance which you will use to develop and improve other key skills and your learning more generally. The key skill of improving your own learning and performance can be practised and developed like other skills, but unlike other skills it seems more difficult to measure and assess. What is possible, however, is to use the structure and activities presented in the OpenLearn course U529 <i>Key skills – making a difference</i> to help you think about what you are doing and how well you are doing it, and then at regular intervals stand back and look at your own progress objectively. This course is designed to be studied for 1 hour per week over 50 weeks.</p><p>This OpenLearn course provides a sample of Level 1 study in <span class="oucontent-linkwithtip"><a class="oucontent-hyperlink" href="http://www.open.ac.uk/courses/find/education-childhood-and-youth?LKCAMPAIGN=ebook_&amp;MEDIA=ou">Education</a></span>.</p>

  • Learning new skills is what makes us human – but can we improve how we go about learning new things in new situations? Learning how to learn can help you to understand what works for you – and what doesn't – when you set out to learn new skills at work, in education or training and in everyday life. In developing and assessing the key skill of improving your own learning and performance, you will learn to recognise, use and adapt your skills confidently and effectively in different situations and contexts.
