About Learning

  1. 1. About LearningMark HolmgrenMay 8 2011<br />“Learning is the process whereby knowledge is created through the transformation of experience” <br />(David A. Kolb, 1984).<br />
  2. 2. Learning is best conceived as a process, not in terms of outcomes. …”a continuing reconstruction of experience.”<br />All learning is relearning.<br />Conflict, differences, and disagreement drive the learning process. <br />About Learningbased on the work of David Kolb<br />
  3. 3. Action Learning<br />L=P+Q+R<br />Learn by doing.<br />Learn together by doing.<br />Transformation requires that people be aware of their knowledge AND their lack of relevant knowledge and be prepared to explore their ignorance through inquiry and support from others in similar situations.<br />Professor Reginald Revans is the originator of action learning.<br />
  4. 4. Bias and Learning<br />Confirmation bias: I prefer information that supports my position.<br />Status quo bias: There’s no reason to change. <br />I do not feel compelled to change.<br />Anchoring happens when a small set of data anchors me to a position.<br />Attentional bias:I consider what is before me and nothing else. I limit choices to the ones that have my attention.<br />Bias Blind Spot – I am not as biased as you are.<br />Contrast Bias: My position on crime and safety contrasted against “I was robbed yesterday”.<br />Framing Effect: drawing different conclusions from the same data.<br />Information bias: Don’t need more to act but we seek it anyway to avoid action.<br />Semmelweis reflex: I reject that data or evidence because it contradicts what is deeply true for me. <br />
