Increasing Readiness for Self-Directed Learning: A Facilitator's Manual for Ten Self-Directed Learning Group Modules for Adults.
Rutland, Adonna M.; Guglielmino, Lucy M.
This manual was prepared for use by adult education teachers in facilitating a self-directed learning (SDL) group for students based on the modules described in the manual. The SDL group involves 10 sessions with specific objectives and activities for each session. Following an introduction, the manual is organized in five additional sections. The first section provides tips for working with small groups, i.e., information on small group dynamics and helpful facilitative responses. The second section contains instructions for facilitating the self-directed learning group and instructions for preparing for the 10 sessions. Objectives, preparations, activities, and assignments for each session are provided. The third section is a flipchart master list for use in preparing for the sessions; it is followed by a list of 11 references and a bibliography of 76 resources on self-directed learning and self-concept. An appendix provides a questionnaire for evaluating the group process. (KC)
