Manifesto We reject a one-size-fits-all approach to learning. While rote learning has its place, guided self- discovery results in better understanding, a greater sense of accomplishment, and a desire to learn more. In education, students need to discover problems and solutions on their own, rather than having them dictated by an instructor or textbook.  The same applies in work and in life. more...

Which way would you rather learn?
There’s the usual way... You memorize a bunch of facts, at least long enough to repeat them on a test.  Keep doing that and eventually you’ll get a diploma.  A certificate.  Or a degree.  Maybe even a job. If you get a job you’ll be given assignments.  Only they won’t be anything like the ones you got in school.  You’ll realize that you have little or no idea how to apply what you’ve learned over those many years. Fortunately, there’s a better way... And you won’t have to cram your head full of empty facts, only to be quickly forgotten. Instead, you can learn, REALLY learn, through a process of guided self-discovery.  We call this deep learning. The idea is simple.  When you discover things for yourself, or with a tutor, instructor, or mentor acting as your guide, it “sticks.”  You gain a deeper understanding of each topic and how to apply it in real life.  Even in entirely new situations. We urge you to give this second way a try.  You’ll see it’s not only better, it’s more fun.  You’ll experience the joy of discovering things for yourself rather than having somebody else ram them down your throat. Here are some of the breakthroughs you’ll experience: making sense in a soundbite world increasing your powers of observation connecting the dots and seeing the big picture breaking old learning habits that are holding you back building and growing your personal body of knowledge communicating what you’ve learned so others may benefit Here’s how to get started...
