Join Aaron Quigley for an in-depth discussion in this video Joining the online conversation, part of Gaining Skills with LinkedIn Learning.
- In the first part of this course, we discussed malleable intelligence. Now, the same way that your intelligence is not a fixed level, the global body of knowledge is also growing. Each day, new discoveries are made, new technology is released, and we, as a human race, are adding to our collective knowledge. True learning is not a fix moment in time, but it's a process. Now, the final part of this course, and a critical part to active participation and learning, is to be in the conversation about your learning. If you ever want to see how much you really know about a subject, attempt to teach it to someone else.
This will illuminate what information and skills you've really mastered and which ones you're still developing. I strongly recommend that you take the time, whether on a social media site, your personal website, or just with other people that have a similar learning goal to share what it is that you've learned. It's a great idea to throw out your learning goals to a larger community and say, this is what I'm working towards. I think you'll be surprised how many people are working on a similar goal. It's also important to share how you learn something. A lot of people online are looking to find people with similar learning goals and then follow along in their footsteps about how they're achieving those goals.
Finally, be sure to ask questions. As you're moving through your learning process, something may seem really obvious to some people but not so obvious to others, and asking questions of a larger community will make sure that you fully understand each step of your learning goal and that you really achieved your learning outcome. I think you'll be surprised how many people online are ready and willing to quickly respond to your questions. LinkedIn articles are a great way to share your knowledge and can even help you grow your professional network to find opportunities where you can use your skills in a future career.
We are incredibly excited to see and hear what it is that you're learning, what your learning goal is, and how we can help you accomplish it.
