Self-learning Project refers to the self-directed learning process.
The learner takes the initiative and the responsibility for the learning outcomes.
The trainer provides students with guidance to fulfill the requirements of
the Self-learning Project. Students select and manage their own learning activities,
which can be pursued at any time. In the end, they present their acquired knowledge
and ideas to an audience of their peers. This helps them get familiarized with conducting
research, writing a report, improving their ability to give lectures and interacting with
the audience. This also helps improve their self-confidence and strengthen their characters.
