Life-long Learning

Thursday, August 02, 2012

Yesterday, we posted a blog titled "Are You Managing Your Career" in which we talked about the importance of life-long learning as part of achieving your career goals. Continual learning is an essential part of personal growth and expanding your interests. Too often we put aside learning, or professional development, and leave it to the occasional business conference or mandatory courses associated with our professions. 

The truth is that life-long learning should be fun! It should not only align with your career needs but also fulfill your personal passions. This is why we got excited when we saw a blog post from TED yesterday which highlighted 12 great free online courses available through different institutions like MIT, Harvard and Coursera. They are calling it the TED Degree in Big Ideas, and what ideas they are! Free courses in Artificial Intelligence, Shakespeare, Bio-Medical Ethics and more. This is a great place to start for anyone interested in utilizing the fast growing world of free online education. 

As for me, I'm going to start with the "Galaxies and Cosmology" course. What are you going to learn?
