The Future of Learning 

Insights from a Temple of Higher Learning

This podcast is about the future of learning – a conversation with Prof. Sanjay Sharma, Professor and Vice President for Open Learning at MIT. A quote which nicely sums up the discussion comes from Plutarch and goes,

“The mind is a fire to be kindled, not a vessel to be filled.” 

You will hear discussions about:

  • Future learning models and the role of colleges and universities
  • Online on-demand learning
  • Most effective methods of learning at any age, based on scientific research
  • What do future learning and Spotify playlists have in common?
  • The most important ingredient for learning at any age
  • The structure of MIT that makes it special
  • Exams-in-a-Ziploc-bag at MIT

P.S. I realized a rather obvious thing. Most of us listen to podcasts like this but never act on it. You can only learn and get better results from the insights when you L.P.T. – listen, practice deliberately and tell/teach others, whether they are colleagues, friends or family. I hope you L.P.T., whatever you glean from this podcast.
