Self-directed learning (SDL) is a seriously under-valued service in business education. The problem is understanding what it is. There are many institutions trying to encourage the public to use this 'other' way of education, but with limited success. This book defines SDL in simple terms and takes the big issues head on. With illustrations to show the relationships between the parts of SDL, this book promises to answer many questions about what to expect in an SDL course or program. This is a first publication for the author.
