Developing Applied Learning Strategies within Discipline EAL202




Having understood the applied learning principles and shared them with others in EAL112 Foundations of Applied Learning, you now use them in this unit to diagnose learning issues in an educational setting, and then propose applied learning measures to resolve the problem. As there is a diverse range of educational skills and experiences in applied learning, this unit provides you with a range of different learning options. Some, especially pre-service students will orient towards a highly scaffolded collegial discussion board analysis, whilst experienced workplace-based practitioners may choose a project option where applied learning is used to resolve an authentic workplace problem. Regardless of the approach you select, by the end of this unit you will recognise from the consideration of authentic issues that effective learning requires authentic tasks and activities, it is dialogical and reflective, and is negotiated based on student needs.
