Lifelong learning expert Jeff Cobb "officially" launched his new book "10 Ways to Be a Better Learner" on Monday, June 4 (the Kindle version will be available for free download for the first week). When I heard this, I straight away invited him to do a webinar, and he accepted the invitation with such short notice (Kudos to him!!!). So, we are thrilled to announce that our next online speaker is Jeff CobbGreat!


Title :
10 Ways to Be a Better Learner
Date : 6 June, 2012 
Time : 10:00 AM, Kuala Lumpur
Venue : Online (WizIQ)

"In this talkI will explore 10 Ways to Be a Better Learner, which is also the title of my new book. It  was inspired by my ongoing work on the Mission to Learn blog, and also by my work in consulting with trade and professional associations on their continuing education and professional development businesses. I've come to believe that one of the critical roles these and other lifelong learning organizations can play is to help their members/customers become more capable and effective lifelong learners in our high-speed, hyper-connected world. I feel that many of us simply weren't all that well prepared by traditional schooling to handle the massive flow of information and the continual need for upgrading our knowledge and skills that are demanded by the "learning economy" in which we now live. I'm hoping this book will provide some easy-to-digest, practical help."  - Jeff Cobb
