We live in the Information age, and while it’s great to have Google, Siri and Cortana at our beck and call – there’s also a pressing need for we as people to know stuff, to learn new things, and to be able to do so as effectively as possible.
In a world that changes daily, where new technologies threaten to replace all our existing competencies, there’s a growing need to become better at the core skill of intelligence: the ability to learn new things.
We’re good at learning. But we can be better. Those who are better have a huge advantage over those who are merely ‘average’ at this crucial skill.
There are two sides to the learning equation: teachers and learners. If we understand better how we learn, then that knowledge can assist teachers to transfer knowledge more effectively. It can also enable learners in their efforts to make sense of the torrent of information directed at them.
Everyone is involved in both learning and teaching to some degree. From the presenter of any webinar to all of the attendees, from the teacher of a PMP prep class to all those hoping to pass their certification exam, each person contributes to both sides of the conversation.
Join Peter de Jager as he revisits the topic of learning, bringing to the discussion the ‘secrets’ of making a presentation ‘sticky’ and shares the findings from studies of memory, retention and improvement.
This webinar series is a de Jager & Co and Interthink Consulting production.
