Guy Claxton's The Learning Power Approach really hits the button by convincingly presenting the key to teaching and learning success. This compelling work is written with passion and awe-inspiring conviction and empowers the teacher to appreciate learner-centred learning as never before. The Learning Power Approach (LPA) concept is underpinned by a strong case for the value of education, which will undoubtedly resonate with teachers and trainers across a broad spectrum.
The LPA model promotes the learner's ability and inclination to acquire knowledge and skill by taking the stance that humankind was programmed to learn as part of a lifelong drive on which the teacher can naturally capitalise. The LPA learner will, therefore, be inclined to observe, critique, experiment and reflect as a natural component of the learning process with his/her curiosity and imaginative powers well honed.
The Learning Power Approach also presents a compendium of invaluable practical strategies with which the teacher can satisfy the learner's whetted appetite for acquiring new skills and knowledge and can encourage the learner to become more self-directive.
