People get into Sankalp India Foundation very young. And those who stay, find themselves sending an incredible amount of time doing things. Doing as in real world work! College is a place to learn and evolve. College is a place where our guys WORK! There is a raging debate in my mind (though I am clearly on one side of the motion) since a few days on the best way to learn something. Is it 'Learn' 'Know' and then 'Work'? Or is the best technique 'Learn' as you 'Work'? Can 'Work' be used as a better opprtunity to learn? Even as we know that different people have a different learning styles, as an organisation, we would like to have a work culture that grows individuals at the better than the nest pace. I thought it would be interesting to hear from people about this subject.
According to me, it is always better to learn as I work..There is a vast area of knowledge available to do anything..One cannot think of knowing or mastering all of it, before applying it to their respective work..
As far as the argument of making work better by learning beforehand is concerned, then there will always be many more opportunities to make this experience of learning the work and implementing it alongside count for the new work later. :)
