Scaffolding Discovery Learning Spaces

Scaffolding Discovery Learning Spaces

Discovery learning spaces may be created in online learning environments to encourage learner-directed training and learning. Such "autodidaxy" learning tends to be autonomous and learner-directed. This chapter addresses the importance of learner empowerment through the building of learner orientation, decision supports, community supports, and new learning archival. This also advocates promotion of learner self-efficacy and decision-making. The Web-based design of online discovery spaces needs to be aligned in pro-learning ways based on relevant theory, research and in-field applied practices.
