What Can We Learn About Unlearning? – Trending In Education – Episode 170

This week, we tackle the topic of “unlearning.” We begin by defining what unlearning has meant across psychology, organizational change, and in the classroom and dig into the debate about whether it is truly part of the learning process. Can we truly “unlearn” something or do we build upon or reframe our understanding as new data and insights come to light? How much of a part does our own humility play in being able to learn new things? Which fields could benefit the most from the concept of “unlearning” and how might it tie to growth mindset, addiction, and related ideas? We discuss all of this and tie back to previous shows and related themes as we talk through this deep and interesting topic. Listen in to begin to figure out how, when, and whether to get your unlearn on!
