In Search of the Citizen Scholar: Modern Pedagogical Approaches Compared
Learning should be a magical experience: it should be a journey of epic proportions and like all good epics it should be challenging, emotionally draining and fun. It should be mentally and physically tough, full of unexpected twists and turns interspersed with moments of wonder. It should also be frustrating, demoralising and captivating. This kind of journey will not only instil in learners a love of learning but will equip them with the skills for the workplace in the future.
