The experience of learning in group versus individual learning contexts

02 October 2020

This study will explore the differences between group and individual learning environments, and how that can affect a person's understanding of a subject. The focus of this qualitative psychological inquiry will take into account the effects of individual differences, social concerns, feelings of comparison with other learners and prior lived experience in relation to learning situations in order to understand the role of learning contexts on learning a subject.
