Webinar: May 5th 2 PM to 3 PM
The latest trend in online education is “me-learning.” In this new trend, the learners discover their own personality for learning and pursue their education using online resources. The vast literature of cognitive psychology and learning theories indicated that learners formulate a strategy to concur with the unknown territory of any new area of study. For example, while learning math the strategy may be to look at examples, and while learning history in may be historical incidence. Synthesizing over 300 such learning theories Dr. Nish Sonwalkar (ScD, MIT) has put together a learning cube pedagogical framework for leaning strategy assessment.

The learning strategies assessment instrument was created and validated by extensive research and field trials. With this learning strategy survey instrument, learners can self-discover their learning strategy before they embark on a learning expedition.
