Self-directed Learning: Compass

Dear colleague,

Welcome to the Self-Directed Learning (SDL) Compass, which aims to support your SDL process. We encourage you to use the SDL Compass frequently. This tool includes the following 5 parts:

  1. Introduction

  2. Quiz 1: Assess your knowledge of self-directed learning.

    This quiz assesses your knowledge and experiences of SDL and provides instructions on how to develop a Personal Learning Plan. The quiz consists of 12 questions. There are no right or wrong answers. You will be able to compare your response to the response derived from the self-directed learning literature.

  3. Access a list of resources on self-directed learning (or other medical topics), such as the accredited Self-Learning activities from the RCPSC and CFPC. You can select and complete one or more of these activities and earn credits. You are responsible for claiming credits online with the relevant accrediting body (e.g. through MAINPORT).

  4. Quiz 2: Resource assessment

    Once you have completed the self-directed learning activity of your choice, we will ask you to reflect on how relevant and useful the activity was for your self-directed learning process.

  5. Quiz 3: Self-directed Compass assessment

    Rates the usefulness of the SDL Compass for your SDL process.
