How People Learn is Fascinating!
I have always found it fascinating to think about how people learn. Many years ago, I taught school-aged youth how to race sailboats. If you are familiar with the expression ‘herding cats’, that’s what it sometimes felt like to teach sailing. This was my first experience teaching, and I was soon struck by the notion that just because I can ‘teach’ something, it doesn’t mean that the learner will ‘learn’ it.
