The learning cycle Engage: The activities in this section capture the student’s attention, stimulate their thinking and help them access prior knowledge. Explore: In this section students are given time to think, plan, investigate, and organise collected information. Explain: Students are now involved in an analysis of their exploration. Their understanding is clarified and modified because of reflective activities. Extend: This section gives students the opportunity to expand and solidify their understanding of the concept and/or apply it to a real world situation. Evaluate: During this stage all aspects of the learning cycle is evaluated for greater effectiveness.
Logical levels of change
Logical Levels of Change Explanation Purpose What’s your purpose, mission or goal? What will that do for you? Identity Who are you? What role are you playing? What are you defending, protecting, promoting, championing, challenging, defeating or rebelling against? Beliefs and Values What do you hold to be true about this context and the other person? What is important to you in this context? How is that important to you? Capabilities & Skills What are you capable of (positively)? How can you do that? Behaviours What do you actually do? Environment Which external factors (people, place, time etc.) influence your behaviour? What external factors influence what you can do, what you believe or value, who you are or what you want? Robert Dilts Useful for understanding change from an individual, social or organisation point of view.
What is NLP ? Neuro-linguistic Programming 1.

It was this question that led to the initiation of their pioneering work into the structure of human excellence
Neuro ~ The nervous system and how we use our five senses to translate experiences into thought processes both consciously and unconsciously. Linguistic ~ The use of language to interpret experiences and how we communicate those experiences to ourselves and others. Programming ~ How we ‘code’ and utilise our experiences in a series of steps in the nervous system to achieve a specific outcome. What is NLP ? Neuro-linguistic Programming
NLP is how we understand and utilise: 1.human communication 2.behaviour and 3.experiences to achieve a specific outcome.
