Upcoming Meetings

  • We are currently on summer break until after Labor Day.

Our Next Meeting: Sept. 8, 9:00am

The Modern Learner
Hosted by Laura Brodzik & Kim Williams, Fiserv 

Our discussion will focus on the following questions:   

  • How are you addressing the evolution of learning?
  • How do you support the evolution?
  • What actions have you taken to address the evolution?

To prepare for the discussion, please review this quote:

"There is an important relationship between the psychology of learning, as we understand it today, and the growing consensus among philosophers and epistemologists that new knowledge creation is a constructive process involving both our knowledge and our emotions or the drive to create new meanings and new ways to represent these meanings. Learners struggling to create good concept maps are themselves engaged in a creative process, and this can be challenging, especially to learners who have spent most of their life learning by rote. Rote learning contributes very little at best to our knowledge structures, and therefore cannot underlie creative thinking or novel problem solving" (Novak & Canas, 2008).
