1. Where Do We Start? > The Learner’s Journey

The Learner’s Journey

Are the following statements true or false?

• If you teach someone about how smoking is bad for them, they’ll stop smoking.

• If someone goes to a management training class, they’ll be good managers.

• If someone takes a really good web design class, they’ll be a good web designer.

• If you teach someone the right way to do something, they won’t do it the wrong way.

Did you think any of those statements were completely true?

No, of course you didn’t, because there are a lot of complicating factors that influence whether a person succeeds or not.

Learning experiences are like journeys. The journey starts where the learner is now, and ends when the learner is successful (however that is defined). The end of the journey isn’t just knowing more, it’s doing more.
