Inspiring insights from OnCourse Learning thought leaders and partners:
Find the time to learn something new
Robert Watters, Vice President of eLearning, OnCourse Learning
“Lifelong learning does not have to be formal or cost money. Even in today’s busy world, you can always find the time to learn something new. Focus learning in small time increments. Stay current through reading articles, books and professional journals. Leverage work opportunities such as lunch-and-learns and make the most of mandated work-related training. Take advantage of free webcasts and webinars. Engage in conversation with other lifelong learners through a social network or a collaborative environment. There is no right or wrong way. Don’t make excuses. There are always nuggets of information you can learn if you open your eyes and ears.”
Lifelong learning is critical in real estate
Len Elder, Senior Curriculum Director of the Superior School of Real Estate, an OnCourse Learning Real Estate partner
“The real estate industry has always been changing. It is difficult to practice the profession of real estate without being a lifelong learner, and it’s impossible to instruct real estate without a commitment to the same. Staying on top of changing rules and statutes, new business models and technology, and the shifting of real estate markets, trends and techniques is critical.”
What lifelong learners have in common
Brett Shively, Executive Vice President and General Manager, OnCourse Learning Real Estate
“I have worked with people from various industries. Whether individuals are learning basic skill sets, completing continuing education requirements or pursuing an online degree, lifelong learners have one thing in common. They desire to be better at what they do and broaden their horizons by exposure to new and interesting things.”
Curiosity is key
Brian Swan, Director of Stringham Schools by OnCourse Learning
“A love of learning and insatiable curiosity are the hallmarks of a lifelong learner. Some people enjoy learning, but are not curious. Others are curious, but only about certain things. Lifelong learners love learning because they see it as growth, and they continue to grow because their curiosity cannot be tamed.”
