Learning is defined as “the act of acquiring new, or modifying and reinforcing, existing knowledge, behaviours, skills, values, or preferences and may involve synthesizing different types of information […]” (Wikipedia).
As people grow older, learning is typically regarded as something practised or acquired through reading, listening to lectures / presentations, watching a documentary or attending an evening class. However, as the definition outlines, learning need not only refer to skills and knowledge, but can also take the form of new or modified behaviour, values or preferences – which are acquired more often by actually experiencing something and thus actively experimenting within a situation.
PLDC is all about education and the further development of professional skills, and about promoting one’s personal career. The team of organisers has introduced a new highlight to PLDC: Experience rooms!
These rooms will invite and encourage attendees to experience different topics of interest to gain first-hand information, undergo an educational process, and add to or expand their personal and professional values and preferences.
How to become a host of an Experience room can be found in the Call for Papers.
