Wij, mensen, hebben de neiging om naar de wereld te kijken in termen van oorzaak en gevolg: A gebeurt omdat B en B zijn gebeurd vanwege C. We passen causaliteit toe op elk deel van ons leven, omdat het ons in staat stelt om door de complexe wereld om ons heen te navigeren gemakkelijk.The downside to causality is that some processes just don’t fit the mold. Those processes are non-linear by nature. They don’t follow a linear path from A through B to C. One of those is learning. Children, for example, learn a language by mimicking sounds they pick up from their parents. School on the other side starts with simple present tense and basic idiom. Quite distinct approaches. And learning a language is just one example of our non-linear learning tendencies. You think ancient foragers developed their hunting skills linearly?
Incorporating non-linearity in corporate trainings
By now you might consider non-linear learning as being unstructured and chaotic. But that’s not what it is. Non-linearity simply creates a more flexible, open and playful environment. An environment that eventually should (and will) become the standard in education, because it makes learning so much more impactful, interesting, diverse and personal. So let’s abandon our linear tendencies and wholeheartedly accept our brain as it is: non-linear.
