Self (or learner) directed learning can be described as a process by which individuals take the initiative in assessing their learning needs, setting learning goals, identifying the necessary resources for learning establishing learning strategies; learning is recognized as a lifelong process.;There is a steadily growing trend to promote a more learner managed approach to learning in a wide range of courses around the world. This book is the fruit of careful research in this area and it brings together in one volume a clear presentation of all the many issues and themes behind self-directed learning.;The author, using many case studies and reference to the work of other authors on the subject, illustrates that learner managed learning is a key ingredient for organizational and personal growth and development.;He argues for the focus of control in learning situations to move from the teacher to the learner. Starting from a survey of current literature and practice the book moves on to develop a model for learner managed learning and to provide guidelines for implementation of that model in a corporate, educational and human resource development context.;While Long admits learner managed learning is not a panacea for all training or educational ills, he demonstrates that it is among the most powerful tools available to educators, teachers lecturers and trainers.
