IDE 735 #2: Learning Contract (LC)

It's my first attempt at drafting a learning contract though I've heard and read about it before. I had wanted to sign up for the Adult Learning class with Romi and Roger Hiemstra but didn't after buying the text book. I kept the text and browsed through it. It came in handy for this course while I was creating my LC.

Surprisingly, I found myself appreciating and liking the fact that I could plan and manage my cognitive strategy for learning from this course. Constructing the LC made me think about what I wanted to learn and how I was going to learn from this course, the deliverables, and the confirmation that I have learned.

I definitely appreciated this exercise and feel this is a good instructional strategy for adult learners who like to manage their own learning.
