Below we have curated a list of resources that were discussed during our Interest Based Learning webinar.
First, let's start with some questions you might like to ask yourself to find our more about your own strengths and interests:
• If you had some free time to do anything, what would you choose?
• Are there activities that you are usually good at?
• What do you like? What do you enjoy doing?
• Are there times when you totally relax?
• What do you get excited about?
• What makes you laugh or smile?
• When do you learn the best?
