What real learning is

Posted on: April 25, 2019

As I strive to be a lead learner, I have to be reminded and learn about learning. Real learning.

Real learning creates discomfort. Sometimes it can even be painful.

Real learning takes effort on the part of the learner — effort that is focused, concerted, and practiced.

Real learning results in changes to what we know, believe, and do.

Real learning rarely, if ever, results from tests. Yet tests are the standard on which alternatives are compared.

How did we get to test-based “learning”? Real learning is difficult to do and measure. Tests are easy by comparison. We take the easy way out. In the process we learn about who we are and what we value.
