Education, How To

We spend a lot of time focused on what we need to learn. But in an era of accelerating complexity and disruptive change, the process of how we learn increasingly needs to be included in our focus.

As a physician, I live with the reality that sometimes our knowledge can fail us. When this happens we need to be able to access learning structures that understand how we learn, anticipate our weaknesses, and leverage our strengths. In short, learning designed for humans.

This talk is about my personal journey that laid the groundwork for using the concept of a self-education loop to "rebrain" myself after a terrifying failed airway experience.
