I was confused. And with me around 70 other learning professionals. Dr. Will Talheimer offered us close to 20 scenarios during his presentation in London. He asked us to choose the most effective learning approach for every scenario.
I mean I failed to choose the best ones more often than I like to admit. And so did my professional peers. So what did we learn? Clear clues of what works best in learning are available but you have to dive deep to gather the relevant clues and apply them in your work.
I often feel pressured by the fast paced world to take the ‘quick & dirty’ approach. But the session made me realise that ‘going deep’ is essential and I’ve made it part of my routine. That's why this episode of my learning notes is dedicated to 'deep' and 'fundamental'. Do you succeed in finding the time to 'dive deep' once in a while? I think you should.
Now I can hear you think: hey Ger, how about ‘deep and fundamental’ when it’s about your learning notes? Good question! I’m ready for that. Have a look at the four learning notes. Read my summary for every note, pick the one that interests you most and…. go deep.
