Paul Kirschner is a renowned educational psychologist and author. He is an Emeritus Professor of Educational Psychology at the Open University of the Netherlands Guest Professor at the Thomas More University of Applied Science in Mechelen, Belgium and owner of kirschner-ED.

His most recent book How Learning Happens, explores 28 key works on learning and teaching, chosen from the fields of educational psychology and cognitive psychology, and discusses what they mean in practice. He's also written books on Evidence Informed Learning Design and Urban Myths about Learning and Education.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The educational researchers that have inspired Paul and laid the foundations for the field
  • Why teaching is an art informed by a science, and how teachers should incorporate research on learning into their process
  • The concept of self efficacy and how our beliefs about our abilities impact our performance

We also discuss when students should learn about how learning happens, the importance of teachers in goal setting and the debate on domain-specific vs domain-general skills.

In this episode I'll reflect on my experience building the podcast over the last few years and share some of the lessons I've learned about the creative process from 150 episodes. I discuss:

  • How being willing to look foolish is the starting point of every great creative achievement
  • The importance of promoting your own work and how to get over resistance to doing it
  • The severe consequences of not doing creative work as a creative person

I hope these insights will prove useful for you. Thank you for listening to the MetaLearn Podcast!
