I just want to get the jokes! Techniques for teaching and learning new topics.
They say the best way to learn something is to be able to teach it. With the technology changing so fast it can seem like as soon as we learn one thing, it is out the door and something else is coming along. Before we know it we find ourselves lost again starting over with something new.
We apply process to so many other areas of our life, I think like anything else we can apply process to streamline our learning endeavors. If we start out with our end goal in mind (the questions we want to be able to answer) we can build a better path to success.
We will take common goal setting ideas and pair them with content creation methods to highlight a process to learning and delivering technical content.
The takeaway comes in the form of having the mental tools and the plans to set a course, ask better questions and ultimately get the jokes everybody else is laughing at.
We will go over the process I use to research a topic with specific learning goals in mind.
Try to pick up any jargon or special definitions in the technology.
Remember what is is like to not know.
Start with writing out the questions you want to be able to answer. You map out your path easier.
