Learning and teaching ...

The mediocre teacher tells.

The good teacher explains.

The superior teacher demonstrates.

The great teacher inspires.

-- William Arthur Ward

When I conduct training, I like to share the ideas of learning the reference points instead of learning the fact and remembering them.

I think it is through telling, explaining and demonstrating that we transfer our learning and knowledge on certain subject matter, which is limited in range.

If we can lead them to learn by "referring" to the pool of knowledge with good indexing tools or reference points, the power of learning will be endless.

With the "reference learning method", one can expands on the knowledge domain and boarder one's zone of understanding.

Do not be afraid that you cannot remember all the facts and details, no one does.

If you know where to get and verify the facts and details when you need them, you will have no problem of creating your knowledge domain in the long run.
