How does ACT adult distance learning in higher education work?

The key to meaningful learning is the way our brain works in order to extract information from a text, and how we absorb and reprocess the information before finally expressing it in the form of written work. The process of studying involves many aspects that enable comprehension that is reading and search for data, new cognitive framework emphasizing concepts hierarchy and interrelation; finally input transformation that is organizing data and writing. The newly acquired thinking structures are not dependent on classic memorization, rather enhance our reasoning capacity and problem-solving skills. This intellectual idevelopment is permanent and expanding. Learning at Asian College of Teachers is not simply getting trained, it is a permanent absorption of newly acquired knowledge and skills.
