G’day, my name is Matt and I’m an enthusiastic learning professional from Newcastle, Australia. I’m interested in all things learning and how learning transfer and performance can be improved.

I also have a keen interest in a number of learning and design related areas including human cognitive architecture, motivation, technology, informal learning and social media. I’m currently studying a Masters of Education in Educational Psychology at UNSW.

This blog is about sharing what I’m learning from working and studying and to also learn from others in this field. Feel free to share your thoughts here as well. You can also connect with me on twitter @MattGuyan

All views and opinions expressed in this blog are mine and don’t necessarily reflect the views of my employer.

    Hi Matt, Found you via your OzLearn group link. I like a lot of what you offer on your blog and OzLearn. I invite you to check SOT Australia’s thinking skills training MOOC, 500M lessons and counting! Eg. E+S+T escape+search = think How to escape your current view of situation CVS to search for a BVS better view of situation? CVSTOBVS! Future effectiveness is better than historical correctness. Michael Hewitt-Gleeson, SOT Principal is rarely recognised in Australia, yet many SOT clients are global market leaders. Why not check Michael’s free training and see what happens when you use it? I started SOT training 21 years ago, and launched SOT training in Poland on May 30, 1994.
