Research in to the education of adults often focuses on the concept of self-direction learning. This often results in the design of learning programmes which presuppose, either directly or indirectly, that the learning endeavours of adults are not only planned by the person, but that the process can self-controlled.

It suggested that learning behaviour is a creative and dynamic process. The concept of metacognition or meta-learning as its guiding philosophy enhances the learning ability of its students and equips them for success in many areas of life. It provides less proficient students with a means of developing responsibility for their own learning, and after fosters psychological independence.
