How We Learn – A Conversation with Monisha Pasupathi

by Jeff Cobb

Over on the Learning Revolution site, I’ve launched a new book. This one has more to do with the business side of lifelong learning – as in how to launch or grow an education/training business. My perspective is – get this – helping actual learning to take place is an important part of running a successful education business.

To that end, Dr. Monisha Pasupathi, a psychology professor at the University of Utah and star of the Teaching Company course How We Learn, was one of the people I interviewed as part of writing the book. I’m now turning my interviews into podcasts, and I thought this one would be of particular interest to Mission to Learn readers.

In our conversation we cover some common myths about learning, talk about how well prepared we are (or aren’t) to deal with a hyper-connected, information-flooded world, and consider the role of the lecture as a form of learning delivery. Have a listen, and be sure to comment and share your thoughts. (I’ve also posted show notes over on the Learning Revolution site.)
