How do you learn?
Anita is fascinated by the question of how people learn. She herself has experienced that theory alone is often dry food if there are no interfaces with practice. But experience alone does not yield much either. It is mainly about the possibility to establish a connection between the two. Translating theory into practice and, above all, reflecting on your experiences, you can learn something from it. Based on your reflection, you are able to adjust your behavior, broaden your horizon and become better as a person and become better at your profession. Ultimately, that’s what it’s all about!
