The Learning Pit: Overcome Challenges to Maximise the Learning Process

We learn more when we step out of our comfort zone to tackle something more challenging. This animation demonstrates how better learning takes place when we overcome challenges

The Learning Pit describes the learning process that occurs when we overcome challenges, developing key skills including persistence, resilience and recall, and reaping better long-term rewards. While it’s tempting to stay in our comfort zones, it’s crucial to push ourselves and take on something more challenging. It can lead to better learning, a vital step to achieving our goals.
