Opportunity Centred Learning: An Innovation in Enterprise Education?
Rae, David
Education & Training, v45 n8-9 p542-549 2003
This paper describes an approach called opportunity centred learning that has been developed by the author and applied in the field of enterprise education. The relationship between opportunity centred learning and existing theory and practice in learning and education is outlined in comparison with problem-based learning and action learning, and the process for using it is described. An example of the type of mind-maps adopted and a short case study illustrate the approach. The conclusions and implications for educational practice including the benefits and limitations of opportunity centred learning are outlined, together with proposed recommendations for further development in emerging areas of enterprise education. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
