From guidelines to learning programmes

The learning programme in action

To assist in planning learning programmes, the learning wheel, offers a schema that places and relates the different elements of the guidelines. This learning wheel follows the same format as that used in the L2LPs but is tailored to the needs of students participating in the L1LPs. The learning programme revolves around the student. It is represented as concentric circles on a wheel to act as a visual reminder and reflective tool for teachers and students that emphasises the importance of maintaining a holistic view of the learning. The concentric circles, from the inside out, reflect the students, aspects of their learning such as the IEP, the categories of learning outcomes involved, the PLUs, potential curricular areas included in the programme, the assessment and qualifications dimension and, finally, some of the principles involved. The table following the diagram describes the elements of the wheel in greater detail.
