About the Book:
The paper encourages nurturing a self-learning mindset, as a potential way forward to close the gap between the aims of education and what is practiced. Learning is a part of our daily life. It is driven by an innate curiosity humans have to understand life around them. Self-learning as a process, over time, builds skills such as self awareness, critical thinking, communication, collaboration; what are now termed 21st century skills.
Over time, self-learning as a process builds skills such as self-awareness, critical thinking, communication and collaboration – all highly-valued traits in today’s employment markets, more commonly defined as 21st century skills. There is a need to acknowledge the changing dynamics in the world around us, and reimagine the way we think of learning.
This paper seeks to curate the existing understanding of self-learning in the Indian context, explore some of the foundational principles and values that define self-learning, and identify ways in which individuals and organizations follow their Self-learning pathways. With this premise, it can be established that self-learning is critical, especially now where the learner has the agency to control what they learn, how they learn and when they learn. The document touches upon structured ways of learning which will help in filling the gap between what skills are taught in classrooms and what skills are required on the job.
