Five Steps in Developing Learning Intelligence (LQ)
For over a year now I have been publishing articles that describe the concept I call Learning Intelligence or “LQ” for short. You can see a list of the articles here: About LQ and articles
My “elevator” speech is that “LQ is the ability of the learner to manage their learning environment to meet their learning needs.” This is proving to be a simple yet powerful approach to teaching and learning.
As you can see from the graphic above LQ consists of a set of Skills, Attitudes, Attributes and Behaviors but how do you go about developing your LQ?
Here are five steps you could try.
1) Understand the impact of your learning environment on your learning and develop a feeling of being “safe” through taking responsibility for your own learning.
2) Determine the best learning strategy in any learning situation, this may involve delaying in depth learning so be patient.
3) Manage those around you or those directing your learning in a way that supports your learning and builds relationships
4) Be confident and willing to collaborate and to share what you have learnt or finding difficult to learn in order to seek support or guidance.
5) Be willing to change what you believe you can and cannot learn.
