Self-Directed learning is definitely workable in tertiary education with today’s technology. Students get access to unlimited resources via the World Wide Web. With the introduction of self-directed learning, students will also be more motivated and independents.
Self-Directed learning also demand discipline from both the lecturers and the students. More work must be done before, during and after the lesson. The lecturers must believe that they do not hold all the knowledge in this World and the best that they can give the students is to teach them how to fish instead of giving them the fish. Training must be provided for lecturers to administer self-directed learning

Critical Reflections on Learning
Learning and teaching
We would suggest that learning and teaching are two sides of the same coin and our understanding of what it means to be a good teacher (see Critical reflection on teaching) is based in part on what we had to do to become successful learners, so this area of our belief system will provide fruitful material for evaluation and reflection.
Williams and Burden express this well:
The successful educator must be one who understands the complexities of the teaching-learning process and can draw upon this knowledge to act in ways which empower learners both within and beyond the classroom situation.

In psychology, habituation refers to learned behavior in ignoring neutral stimuli. Habituation theory holds that when an animal is repeatedly exposed to stimuli that neither hurts nor helps, it stops responding. This lack of response to something that isn't posing a problem means that the animal isn't wasting energy; it's still alert in case danger does occur.
Although it's easy to confuse habituation learning with sensory adaptation, the two aren't the same. Behavior is the key in habituation, as the animal may respond to the stimuli in other ways, but one part of the response is stopped.
Habituation means that when

Perceptual learning occurs when a person is repeatedly exposed to specific stimuli; in this case, it would be information (The Institute of Perceptual Learning, 2013).

There are several advantages and disadvantages with regards to motivation in e-learning.
For many students, e-learning is the most convenient way to pursue a degree in higher education. A lot of these students are attracted to a flexible, self-paced method of education to attain their degree. It is important to note that many of these students could be working their way through college, supporting themselves or battling with serious illness. To these students, it would be extremely difficult to find time to fit college in their schedule. Thus, these students are more likely and more motivated to enroll in an e-learning class.

VARK Learning Styles
Grand Canyon University: NRS-429V
School can be a difficult time for many. There is a lot of information to learn, and it seems impossible to retain. A man by the name of Neil Fleming noticed these difficulties, and in 1998 he established the VARK (Visual, Aural, Read/write, Kinesthetic) learning style assessment to help an individual discover how they learn the best. He based this assessment on three principles: everyone is capable of learning, but how they do it depends on the person; when a person is made aware of their individual learning style, it will increase their motivation for learning; and concepts are best learned using different perceptions

Learning English in Young Age: Children learn English as another Language
There seems to be no optimum age for learning a language, according to linguistics experts. Singleton (1995) writes, “There is no point at which vocabulary acquisition can be predicted to cease.” Adults have several advantages over children when it comes to learning foreign language, especially English. Research by Harold B. Dunkel and Roger A. Pillet in 1957 assessed both adult beginning learners of French and elementary students learning French. In their studies Dunkel and Pillet found that the adult students performed better in written and oral tests, but worse on pronunciation. Adults tend to

Possessing a multi-modal learning style (mm), aural (A) and kinesthetic, (K), offer the learner the flexibility to move from one to another depending on the topic and/or situation. While the aural element tacks to the appreciation of lectures and discussions, the kinesthetic is more focused on “the hands” method of learning. Toggling between aural and kinesthetic is challenging and fluid, but the rewards more than compensate for this diversity in learning styles.

The purpose of this research is to test a theoretical model of relations between job design (eg: completeness, demand of responsibility, demand of cooperation, cognitive demand, and learning opportunities) and the reflexivity and learning process within natural group works in industry. The methodology used in this research are based on the detailed task analyses and questionnaires from 40 work groups at the shop-floor level in manufacturing industry in Sweden. From this research, it is found that in a group work, reflexivity and learning processes is strongly affected by job design and work routines. The four dimensions on job design which are completeness, demand of cooperation
