Dr. Mable Chan
Fostering Indpendent Learning

One of the missions of university education is to develop independent learners. In this video, Dr. Mable Chan shares her experience of using learning contract to help her students develop capacity for independent learning. Students have to identify their learning objectives, set learning plan and provide artefacts in order to show their attainment of the intended learning outcomes. At appropriate points, Dr. Chan provides opportunities for students to review their learning progress and share their learning experience. She is happy to see her students gradually become more confident and comfortable with learning on their own.
