The art of persuasive presentations There’s a widespread view that you only need to persuade your audience when you’re making sales presentations.

heutagogia Heutagogian perusajatuksena on autonomisuus, itseohjautuva ja -määräytyvä oppiminen. Tutustu Steward Hasen ja Chris Kenyonin ajatuksiin. Pinnalliseen oppimiseen riittää yleensä vastaus kysymykseen mitä, syvempään miten ja perusteelliseen omaksumiseen miksi.
