Who is up for a 5-day learning opportunity?
Just because we are in summer does not mean we take a vacation from our personal development! We may slow down a bit and take more time for ourselves to rest and recover from busy lives, though that does not mean our learning stops. Formal learning may pause, yet informal, experiential, just-in-time, and even social learning continues. If anything, these are the primary ways in which we learn anyway, though that is for another post 😉
It may seem this time of summer is mindless, though I wonder if perhaps we can challenge that notion. Perhaps in taking time for ourselves, we can slow down and allow other ideas or thoughts to surface. Want to explore this for a week . . . like next week?
Who is up for a 5-day learning challenge starting on Monday?
This is what I am thinking. Choose one thing you want to know more about — nothing large-than-life, nothing intense, and nothing that will cause you anxiety (it is the summer, after all). Simply an area you want to explore, and then commit to learning more about it. We can share what we have in mind, share what happens when we explore it, and then help support one another in being accountable for learning just one thing each day.
No books to read. No reports to write. No papers to submit. Nothing stressful at all . . . more like a summer reading club where we choose the topic and then choose to share what the experience is like.
How does this sound?
