It involves an awareness of the need to learn, and the desire to learn. This means:
- taking responsibility for one’s own learning;
- exploring and optimising own learning potentials;
- learning with confidence, curiosity, and initiative;
- being aware that skills and resources needed to achieve learning goals are either within, or are available to, oneself;
- being able to transfer learning to new situations.
