"Self-directed lifelong learning is a vision and a possibility with much promise for the shift to a culture of life, by life and for life.  Such learning involves steady investments of attention, time and energy that almost any person can make.

In this session, you will acquire and work with a set of considerations that enhance investments in learning – yours and others' – both during this conference and for years to come.  You'll get clearer about the choices that brought you to the conference, the choices you have at the conference and choices you'll have henceforth.  The clarity, awareness and skills gained will improve your uptake and retention of information, and your benefits from self-directed learning.

David Eggleton, an old-and-new permaculture designer, and Steph Kent, an interpreter, analyst and multi-channel communicator will present and, with a worksheet and exercises, walk you though considerations of paradigms, concepts, relationships and activities that comprise the culture-shifting system that David has devised. The system is flexible and adaptable, as the pair's focus on your learning at this conference will demonstrate.

The considerations merge learning theory with the permaculture principles."

This is a new way to characterize what I devised to ensure that I would always be able, when serving as a coach, to shift an extended conversation.

We'll have one hour, very early in the conference.

The conference (March 13-16) was great, in quantity and quality.

During our session, one of four immediately after the opening keynote talk, time flew.  Steph had planned well, so we did share everything we intended.

The conference organizer wants us back next year, with an expanded role, including optional pre-conference webinars to help those registered understand and prioritize their learning opportunities.
