About-

In Adventures in Self-Directed Learning, Dr. Bernard Bull draws from over a decade of research to build a compelling case for the importance of nurturing agency, ownership, and a capacity for self-education in learners. He casts a vision for education in a connected age, offers readers a collection of practical suggestions for how to get started, and also works through common challenges and pitfalls. This is a must read text for anyone who believes that education should equip learners to fully embrace the challenges and opportunities of life and learning in the contemporary world.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"The mission statements of most schools include some paean to students becoming 'life-long learners.' Dr. Bull's Adventures in Self-Directed Learning makes the case for why this is more critical than ever and offers some sound advice on how teachers can encourage their students to walk this path." 
--Kevin Dunning, Superintendent, Bellevue Christian School
