We live in a fast an ever changing world, where the only constant is change. It is beyond one person to keep up with all the changes, but continue to learn we must.
Learning here does not mean necessarily something specific to our line of work or everyday tasks: On the contrary, ideally it should be something beyond that. To be the best at what we do, we need to be innovative and creative: Thinking of new ways of doing things, and learning when to discard proven ways to try something new which might work better. In order for us to be creative, our minds require stimulation and new perspectives, that will help connect the many different dots together and create new lines.
Learning new things usually will include reading material, such as books or blog posts we find on the internet, or even listening to TED videos. But unfortunately due to the demands of modern living, we seldom find enough motivation to create time and effort to do so.
About LearnDay@LaLoka Labs
LearnDay is a monthly online seminar initiated by the LaLoka Labs . We will have speakers from the team or guest speakers which will talk for 20 minutes each, on a subject of their choosing. The aim is to:
* Give us a reason to do some meaningful reading (of those piles of books or links but never gotten to read) to improve our knowledge and share with others* For the technical team, it can be a place for them to also reinforce their technical knowledge.* For everyone on the team,** Churn the material that we read, understand it and improve our skills at communicating what we understand** It can be an opportunity for us to learn and be stimulated by new knowledge or techniques introduced by our peers, to debate and ask questions and also contribute to the public with what we’ve learned.* For the public, it can be an opportunity to also learn something new, and get to know who and what drives LaLoka Labs.* Material can any non-fictional subject: From technology, economy, history, arts or even politics. Anything that the speaker finds interesting.
Due to the short duration we have set for speakers, these sessions are not meant to be in-depth discussions or explanation of the presented material, but more of a summary high-level introduction of the materials.
Although it will be a big plus if the speakers become experts on the topics which they present, the main aim of LearnDay is giving opportunity for everyone to practice communication by sharing a topic of their interest to everyone else, and for everyone else to be introduced to new things.
These seminars will be done online, and the public is welcomed to join in and contribute in the discussion or knowledge sharing.
