Strategies for designing, managing and monitoring learning
  • Employs a range of approaches to plan and manage sustained learning tasks, e.g. uses project management software, formal-action learning approach
  • Evaluates situations or processes, assembling evidence, identifying assumptions and contradictions
Finding, managing and evaluating learning resources
  • Critically evaluates resources, including ICT, with an appreciation of strengths and limitations in different contexts
  • Articulates and uses criteria to make information decisions and choices
  • Investigates benefits and applicability of different investigative methods and selects the more appropriate, e.g. laboratory experiement, simulation, fieldwork
Transferring prior knowledge and skills
  • Compares and contrasts own experience with new information and explores underlying assumptions as an integeral part of developing new understandings
  • Generalises from 1 context to another by indentifying concepts and insights
Selection and application of cognitive strategies to assist learning
  • Identifies and explores connections between concepts/facts/ideas using techniques such as flow charts, concept maps, hierarchies
  • Selects from a broad range of problem-solving and decision-making strategies, including formal lateral and analytical thinking tools to support abstraction, perception challenge, creativity
Social construction
  • Demonstrates highly developed skills in managing study groups/project teams to achieve learning outcomes
