‘Shall we self-study?’ by Alexandra Chistyakova

Alexandra Chistyakova’s latest blog post is titled “Shall we self-study?”.

Alexandra says, “The advantages of self-study groups are self-obvious: higher motivations of participants for learning; the increased sense of responsibility for one’s part of a task; the inspiring feeling of togetherness and being one team; the genuine interest in what participants are studying; better understanding and acquisition of the material as one has to teach it to others; and, the last but not the least, extensive practice of communicative skills. Not surprising that all these advantages may lead to better learning outcomes.”
