How to be an effective learner

November 10, 2018

I'm involved with a few other podcasts, and recently we did a series of podcasts for the ultrasound podcast where we talked about some key aspects of producing a good lecture (Check them out here, if you haven't: Part 1 Part 2).  In this podcast, I'm going to give you 3 top tips for being an effective learner when you hear a lecture.  It's just a bit past that 5 minute mark I try to keep these videos at, but there was just too much goodness to make it shorter than what it is.  Enjoy!
