Class 01: Defining Self-directed Learning 

Summary: We had an orientation about how to be successful and get the most out of this course to support your university studies and learning. To understand more about self-directed learning, we viewed and studied Peter Gray's youtube video below:

Gray, P. (2015). Self-directed learning. [Video file]. Retrieved from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YoE480mzrk0


Homework due in class on 06/24/2020: 

1. Complete one entry or more of self-study in your Four-Skills Log. The entry should be one hour in length or longer, and please answer the questions completely: 

Which day, which practice task, and how long?  Reflections: What did you do? How long for? What did you notice? How did you feel? New speaking or listening goals?

2. Please read and take about two pages of notes on the video in keywords of:

Gray, P. (2015). Self-directed learning. [Video]. YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YoE480mzrk0
