Your Learning Journey

Exploring learning through your life and how this impacts on your teaching/facillitation practice

The only real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. Marcel Proust

A great way to begin reflecting on your learning journey is to consider the following 3 questions:

What does learning mean to you?

What does teaching mean to you?

How does your approach to teaching impact on learners?

Learning from experience is different from 'formal learning': it is largely unstructured; it is more personal, more individualised and is often unconsciously gained. It is, however, just as real as learning which is gained in a formal academic setting. What is more, it is usually more permanent: it is not readily forgotten or lost. - (VaLEx,2005, Pg5).

In preparing for a GCTLT APEL assessment it is helpful to look back at what has influenced the way you think about learning and teaching.

Here are some questions that you can use as a prompt:

Which teachers in your life (formal and informal) doe you remember the most?


What impact did they have on your learning?

What did you like or not like about their teaching?

What did you learn from them?

Were these people your role models?

if not who are your role models?


What did you learn from them?

Turn your notes into a reflective narrative on the influences on learning and teaching in your life.

Share this with your facilitator for feedback.
