What Are Linking Learning Exercises

Linking Learning exercises are self-administered, semi-structured exercises. They challenge you to look at day-to-day activities as learning opportunities. The Linking Learning submission forms helps you to identify a question, and then guide you through a series of critical inquiry and practice reflection exercises on your way to answering the question.

Each completed Linking Learning exercise earns five Mainpro+ certified credits and there is no limit on the number of exercises you may complete in a cycle.
