Traditional educational approaches are increasingly ineffective for the needs of today’s learners and society more generally. A new personalised learning solution is required which incorporates an expanded view of education incorporating human rights and capabilities, alongside the traditional human capital educational model.  

This book considers the policies, pedagogy and practice required to achieve this critical transformation. It extends traditional functional learning approaches, based on behavioural, experiential, dialogic and participatory learning, to place the learner at the centre of their learning. By defining the principles of personalised learning and mapping out future opportunities, Ward makes a captivating argument for a new way of learning, based on improved teacher and learner agency, self-regulated learning, personalised learning and metalearning. 

This book considers a broad range of educational concepts involving the learning person. By combining our learning environment, performance, capabilities and expertise with discussions of personalised learning design, technology and policy, it equips readers to reflect on how they learn currently, and how we might all learn in the future.
