Learning something new in 2021 – that was the impetus for the TUM Learning Challenge 2021.
Whether professional skills or private interests: With the TUM Learning Challenge 2021, the TUM Institute for LifeLong Learning wanted to support participants in successfully achieving their own learning goal. Whether a foreign language, technical skills or a new sport - our learning experts from the TUM Institute for LifeLong Learning supported participants with monthly learning impulses, the so-called Learning Nuggets, to overcome hurdles and successfully shape their own learning process.
Participants could submit their personal Learning Challenge 2021 here on the Learning Festival website. As part of the Learning Community, they received helpful tips every month on how to achieve their personal learning goal.
All Learning Nuggets can be found on this page. Maybe you already have a learning goal in mind for 2022?
but a great desire many of us have: We wish to keep growing, to learn new things, and to share our views of the world with others. But sometimes this comes too short in the hustle and bustle of everyday (professional) life. With the TUM Learning Challenge, we want to encourage you to purposely make a resolution about what you want to learn in 2021. As research shows: The more concrete this learning goal, the greater the chance that you will achieve it!
