This is the sixth decentralised syllabus, with a group I originally began teaching back in October 2013.

This time I made a new individual learning plan for each learner, but I changed it slightly. My reasoning was – what’s the point of filling out a learning plan that just vanishes after the first week? So I added a new section – ‘Questions to ask yourself after ….. weeks’.

In Week 1 learners write down questions they want to ask themselves in Week …. (e.g. Week 4, this depends on the length of the syllabus). This means that the learning plan remains an active tool rather than a dead document.
