Title: "Learning with Phenomenology" 

Abstract: In this interactive webinar, the speaker shares practices of phenomenology that may assist in learning new and difficult material in personally meaningful ways. Examples from research and demonstrations are included such as a group examination of the Necker Cube. The classic warning about a little knowledge being dangerous is updated for our current context. There will be time for questions at the conclusion of the discussion.
