A good learning plan is a well-articulated document with the following components.
- A set of reasonable learning goals that the individual hopes to achieve within a specific period of time.
- It is often useful to divide larger goals in to more manageable sub-goals that can be realized within weeks or months.
- Each learning goal (or sub goal) should have a series of concrete steps or actions that the person will take to move towards the goal.
- Actions should be actual behaviors. Use an action verbs (explore, examine, utilize, demonstrate, apply, analyze, define describe, interpret, prove, illustrate, distinguish, propose, devise, construct, defend, compare.)
- Each action should be associated with one or more resources and with evidence.
- Resources are anything that can be used to realize the actions to be taken towards the learning goals, such as a mentor or coach, books, courses, travel and the Internet, Note: once a resource has been applied to a goal it is often helpful to rate the effectiveness of the resource.
- Evidence is used to demonstrate that an action has been taken, that progress towards the goal has been made, and finally that the goal has been achieved.
