The Modern Learner
Facilitated by Megan Cardenas, Vice President, Training Manager at U.S. Bancorp Fund Services, and SEWI-ATD Member
Hosted by Laura Brodzik & Kim Williams, Fiserv
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).
The purpose of our PDN is to bring together managers and supervisors within our industry to discuss topics of interest, current industry trends, collaborate on best practices, and connect with other colleagues in similar roles. Our goal is to help members of this network improve professionally and bring greater value to the organizations they serve.
Learning Leaders, we hope you will join us! You do not need to be a member of SEWI-ATD to attend.
