This resource includes guidance notes for developing a learning contract for self-directed study, together with a template for the Learning Contract. It is designed to be used by adult students attending short courses but wishing to develop a more formal approach to study than that provided by the short courses. The intention is for them to design their own project and together with a tutor to identify suitable assessments. Subject based learning outcomes should be based on the specific goals the student has set. The resource is designed to be worked through on a one-to-one basis with a tutor.
