Philosophy of Learning

In his Reflections on the Human Condition, Eric Hoffer wrote, “In a time of drastic change it is the learners who inherit the future. The learned usually find themselves equipped to live in a world that no longer exists.” Stepping into the uncharted territory of “what could be” requires curiosity and just-in-time, self-directed learning skills that enable us to dive into areas of knowledge that emerge as we explore problems and imagine possible solutions. Confidence in our learning skills is what can put us at ease when we find ourselves faced with ambiguity.
