What is “generative learning?”
According to author and MIT Sloan School of Management professor Peter M. Senge, generative learning “enhances our capacity to create.” Engaging in generative learning involves linking existing knowledge about a subject with emerging ideas, resulting in a more individualized understanding about its systemic significance. In short, generative learning is about owning information by engaging it in a way that makes it relevant to you.
An ideal model for organizational development, generative learning enables individuals to realize the relationship between their personal responsibilities and the goals of the group. In a classroom environment, whether it be academic or corporate, a generative learning approach stimulates self-reliance among students who are asked to actively engage material rather than passively listening to lectures.
Embracing this philosophy, Generative Learning Group provides organizational development, management training and instructional design services to entrepreneurial entities, corporations and educational institutions seeking information for work and knowledge for life. We research topics and issues useful to our clients, other individuals and organizations in need of insight.
