Explaining Complex Concepts : Continuous Learning Loop

Visulisation of a learning loop

In the world of business agility, I often find myself needing to explain complex concepts in a way that's easy to understand. That's where the Feynman Learning Technique comes in, and it's been a game-changer for me.

Richard Feynman, with his brilliant mind, not only revolutionised physics but also had a remarkable talent for simplifying the intricacies of nature for all of us.

The Continuous Learning Loop

Here's how I've adapted it to my learning journey:

1️⃣ Learn a Concept

I dive deep into the subject, through practising it if applicable, to gain a good level of understanding.

2️⃣ Explain It Simply

I explain it aloud as if I'm teaching it to someone new in the field, ensuring clarity and accessibility.

3️⃣ Identify Gaps in My Understanding

I pay attention to areas where my explanation falters, using them as signposts for improvement.

4️⃣ Go Back and Study More (if any gaps)

I use these gaps as opportunities to refine my knowledge.

And then, it's back to step 2️⃣ as a continuous learning loop.
