Informal Learning Strategies with Ian Gibbs

In a forever-changing world, the ability to learn new knowledge and new skills is more important than ever. Unfortunately, our current education system is aimed at getting students to follow instructions and get certificates rather than producing autonomous learners.

New recruits usually receive some sort of prescribed semi-formal training (here’s this & do that) but once left on their own, few are aware of how to develop a personal learning strategy to craft their skills for their current jobs or to prepare themselves for the next.

In this talk, Ian Gibbs, gives a brief outline of informal learning strategies to help you strengthen your skillset and give added value.
