Learning is an art, diverse in nature. It requires form and is tempered by keen practice. In order to understand how, we must first discuss what constitutes learning. The second biannual TALKS seminar, held on December 6th, 2014 at 2:00pm in the Biotech Auditorium, brings together four world-renowned thinkers and speakers of the Rensselaer Community to touch on this topic. Together, we begin a journey to discover and discuss The Design and Practice of Learning.
