For a tech-savvy BA I suggest they first read: There are many different learning styles. Some people learn well from lectures, some from reading. What is certainly true though is that no-one actually learns programming without doing programming and getting it wrong: people really do learn from their mistakes. Also people need to be able compare good and bad so as to create a scale against which to measure what they read. Most courses focus on what is good and never introduce what is bad. This is bad. Last, for the moment, is that people need independent feedback on what they have done to fit it into the scale. Thus, no matter what the best learning style a good course is always a good thing, no matter you favourite perceived learning style. -- Russel. ============================================================================= Dr Russel Winder t: [masked] voip: sip:[address removed] 41 Buckmaster Road m: [masked] xmpp: [address removed] London SW11 1EN, UK w: www.russel.org.uk skype: russel_winder
