What is the Capacity for Learning for Human Beings throughout the Lifespan?
Are there certain basic principles of learning, of skill-building, that apply to all human beings and in all situations?
All our Learning Projects are based on the premise that there are such common basic principles of effective learning and skill-building that apply to all human beings at every age and culture and that these are important basic principles for effectiveness in all areas of life.
The research on healthy human development supports the proposition that when we human beings feel safe internally in the moment, we are open to learning, open to exploring, open to trying new things. This is certainly true of infants. When an infant feels safe, he/she is naturally alert, interested, curious.
It is true of grown-ups too!! It may even be true that if one is not interested, curious, open to learning, that is a sign he/she does not have an internal safe, secure sense of self.
