Group Learning. Today’s exercise: Unit Testing (Llewellyn Falco)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Abstract:
Everyone know that continual learning is important, but how do you keep your team learning new skills when you don’t have them yet?
Together, we will look at using Koans to learn programming languages, api’s, and development techniques. We will be doing an exercise in unit testing, but
you don’t need to be a programmer to attend this session.
The actual focus is on learning and teaching in groups. As such, there are 3 ideal personalities for this workshop:
  • Managers/Teachers who need to teaching their team things they don’t know themselves.
  • Programmers who want to increase their unit testing skill set.
  • Instructors who want to create their own self guided curriculum

Learning Outcomes:
  • How to learn in a group
  • How to do/create koans
  • How to gather insights from a group
  • The importance of stating the obvious
  • Tips & tricks in eclipse/visual studio (I will poll the audience at the start to choose language)
  • How our perceptions color and influence what we see and learn
  • How to learn incrementally
  • How to learn without an expert
