Old Model of Learning

Podcast interviewer: Patrick mcAndrews

In this podcast Dr. Kieran explains why many individuals are trapped in a behaviorist thinking system that fails to do justice to their individuality, their identity, or their potential. In this world of rewards and punishments, extrinsic motivational baubles rob the learner (and the worker) of their innate opportunities replacing them with meaningless absurdities that usurp purpose. This behaviorist world shapes schools, parenting and management delivering a fixedness that confirms a deterministic worldview that precludes plasticity and flexibility. What are the implications of a world with outdated view of how humans learn permeates the structures of modern times.
