Self-paced learning is essentially a student-centred approach to training and development. It provides learners with all the tools and resources they need to learn at their own pace and choose the order and focus of their learning.

It is fast becoming the go-to method for students, especially those enrolled in online courses. In fact, many educators across Australia now prioritize self-directed learning for better learner engagement rates.
