How many years have you been working in the learning/development realm?
How did you first get into the learning and development world?
In my junior year of college I signed up to be a Teaching Assistant (TA) for a Cognitive Psychology course that I had previously taken the semester before. This TA position wasn't just a regular take attendance and grade quizzes/homework type of gig, but rather it was much more than that. I coordinated and taught the labs for this course! While being a TA, I was able to help students learn well-known cognitive experiments and also understand the real-world applications of the findings.
