At the Simon Fraser University (Education) Learning Together Conference May 17-18, 2013, I will present some of the ideas from my upcoming book on developing professionally and personally from knowledge resources using cognitive science and technology. By “knowledge resource”, I mean documents, podcasts, audiobooks, presentations and other learning materials. In keeping with the social theme of this conference, in my session, we will explore collaborative aspects of productive practice. The title of my talk is “Collaborative productive practice for professional and personal development: Socializing a new deliberate-practice framework.”
Here is the link to the abstract to whet your appetite.
Don’t let the abstract’s academic tone throw you. My talk will be geared not only to educators and cognitive scientists but also to all professionals who wish to optimise their own professional and personal development. I will be releasing a lot more information about the framework in the second quarter of this year. (The first complete draft of the 400+ page book is nearly complete.)
I hope to see you at the LTC conference.
