Self-Directed Learning Improves Quality of Life
The SeDLE (Self-directed Learning Environment) Index is developed to measure the strength and ability of the learning environment to facilitate self-directed learning. This is a conceptual paper to explain the development and validation of the SeDLE index. Evidence showed that a self-directed learning environment exhibits a self-directed learner in promoting one’s quality of life. The self-directed environment will support and inhibit the ability to function with less supervision among learners thus viewed as a solution to reduce the problem of spoon feeding in the classrooms.
