Self-Directed Learning (SDL) differs from other types of learning in the sense that instead of waiting for someone to nominate us to attend a training course, we take charge of our own learning.
Thus the responsibility of structuring a learning opportunity becomes that of the learner.
Self-Directed Learning (SDL) is learner-centered and it enables the learner to plan, organise and actively engage in learning opportunities, both formal and informal.
SDL also increases the ability of learners to engage in lifelong learning and thus ensuring their own employability as well as the ability to continuously reinvent themselves.
The SDL eSuite consists of a wide variety of Competency-Based Learning Resources in a blended learning format.
There are 175 SDL Modules consisting of more than 30 specific developmental resources and activities.
