Teaching and Learning

The best way to learn something really well is to teach it to someone else (Bargh and Schul, 1980 ).

If you can explain something to a six year old, Then you probably don't understand it yourself...

You probably don't know what you are talking about...

The Ernst Strungmann Forum

Science is a highly specialised enterprise - one that enables areas of enquiry to be minutely pursued, establishes working paradigms and normative standards, and supports rigor in experimental research.

The EMoD - Economic Modeling Programme at The Oxford Martin School......

The Economic Modelling Programme (EMoD) aims to develop new methods of economic analysis and forecasting that are robust after crises. The 21st Century began with the largest global economic and financial crisis since the Great Depression 80 years ago. Many factors have been blamed for this disastrous outcome, but inadequate economic models leading to a failure to forecast the crash are partly at fault. These have been exacerbated by poor policy responses, precipitating the need for a paradigm shift. Consequently, researchers in EMoD are investigating the changes needed in economic analyses, policy, empirical modelling and forecasting when there are sudden, or very rapid, unanticipated changes in economies. EMoD researchers are also analysing the causes of economic inequality and the role of inequality in financial crises, and have played a key role in developing the World Top Incomes Database. EMoD is led by Professor Sir David Hendry (Director) and Professor Bent Nielsen (Co-Director) and is conducted in collaboration with the University of Oxford’s Department of Economics and Nuffield College. EMoD is part of the Institute for New Economic Thinking at the Oxford Martin School (INET Oxford), a multidisciplinary research institute dedicated to applying leading-edge thinking from the social and physical sciences to global economic challenges.

The Problem With unlearning!

"Ever since the publication of Peter Senge's The Fifth Discipline, 25 years ago, companies have sought to become "learning" organisations' That continually transform themselves. In our era of digital disruption, this goal is more important than ever. Buy even the best companies still struggle to make real progress in this area."
