Help individuals learn periodically for themselves

In this section we will consider TEN ways that you might advise individuals to learn something independently and in this case  periodically for a more concerted learning experience of at least an hour – outside of the organisation. Many of these are fairly traditional ways of learning, so they should be used to supplement an individual’s daily learning rather than be relied upon entirely.

Each page of this section, provides some reading and a question to think about.
