Thedefinition of a learning contract that this assessment is based on is asfollows, from Donald (1976):a document drawn up by a student and [the] instructor or advisor, whichspecifies what the student will learn, how this will be accomplished, withinwhat period of time and what the criteria of evaluation will be.The main characteristics of our agreement that emerges from this definitionare:1.It is drawn up on the basis of negotiation between the learner and theinstructor/teacher.2.It has flexibility, which allows learners to have a bigger say in what theywant to learn, how they will go about learning, how long it will take and howtheir learning will be assessed and evaluated.3.It is student centered, so that it offers a learning experience whichaddresses the specific needs of the learner.4.It provides a framework for learners to develop and take responsibility fortheir own learning.Reference: Donald J G (1976) “Contracting for Learning” in Learning andDevelopment Vol. 7 No. 5The Learning Agreement in depth .1 Identify an appropriate focus of study This will be your opportunity toadopt a specific role(s) within the group and should be negotiated with thegroup as well as your tutor.
