Curiosity is a vital mental state for both learning and problem solving, but who has the time to be curious these days? We’re too busy rushing from one task to the next, barely having time to lift up our heads, let alone ponder ‘what if?’. It’s clear how important curiosity is, so in this interactive session we’ll explore how to elbow some time and headspace to enhance our own curiosity and that of our learners. It’s time to get curious about curiosity!

In the session we’ll:

  • Explore the evolutionary advantage of curiosity and why it’s so addictive
  • Share some scientific research on curiosity that will change how you think about it.
  • Generate and share a number of approaches we can all use to build curiosity in our learners.
