Learning about learning
I love conferences, and my friends might consider me a conference junkie. During this event, I've been struck by the fact that most of the workshops I've attended have been lectures with PowerPoint slides, one of the things that people lament about as being the dreadful part of training. I've been totally engaged by the content, and left making connections to my world. What is it about conferences that make them engaging that is such a contrast to much of our training that puts people to sleep?
What does all this mean for us? How can we create right-sized learning that learners are invested in?
Impossible, you say? I'm not so sure. We do it with conferences all the time.
Teacher by training, learner by design.
