Book Description

Living in the world today, each of us is challenged with the need to learn and teach, but waiting for others to provide for our needs in these areas is not a wise strategy. Learning Wheels merges systems and learning theory to provide a new way to deal with this challenge. Learning Opportunities are easy to see, but they are normally in a state of chaos and rarely fully exploited. The mental models presented in this book can act as a vaccination against that chaos and provide a springboard to getting more out of every learning opportunity. Note that only you need to change in order to benefit from these concepts. The thesis of this book is; "If we as individuals can learn to be aware of learning opportunities and if we can couple that awareness with the skills required to adapt to the situational nature of each opportunity, we can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of learning for ourselves and others"

5.0 out of 5 stars Of course I love it, I wrote it! 10 Aug 2013
By David C. Mims Sr. - Published on Amazon.com
Consider this book as assigned reading for any serious training courses or decision making meetings involving diverse groups of people with diverse experience and/or objectives. The more important the meeting/training, the more important it is to manage effectiveness and efficiency.

Experienced facilitators, using these concepts and techniques, find it simple to build consensus on session governance guidelines and exercises. The Learning History approach developed at MIT is the fundamental concept outlined in this book providing a reliable means to getting an entire group to work together through a shared vision.

Give me feedback on your successes so that others can learn from your "Learning Wheels."
