The Why

The Why Behind Documenting Learning

#documenting4learning

When the "act and the process of documenting learning" becomes the vehicle to learn, we can look at it as a method that facilitates learning.

About the book…

“In Documenting Learning, the authors seek to qualify, rather than quantify, what contemporary learning is all about: looking for, capturing, reflecting, sharing, and amplifying the learning that is taking place. In this text, they break down these actions and how they apply to before, during, and after learning moments and describe a new way to approach contemporary work and self-determined learning.”
Michael Fisher, Author and Consultant
