Personalised Learning: The Limits to Individualism

A lecture by Dr Alison West, Chief Executive of the National Extension College, Cambridge.

Open discussion will follow 'Coffeehouse Challenge style' kicked off by brief response from Richard Millwood, director of Chelmsford-based Ultralab.

Dr West's theme is that it seems obvious that the more learning is tailored to the needs and interests of the individual, the more effective it will be. Education providers are meeting this challenge through modularisation, new combinations and new methods of delivery. In the long run, a radical individualism will affect the concept of knowledge as a social construct and we may come to regret fostering a pic'n'mix approach to education.

The National Extension College, founded in 1963 by (Lord) Michael Young, has established itself as the leading independent provider of tutor-supported home study courses.
