This POD Talk explores a professional development learning adventure that helps participants confront the expert blind spot -when specialist instructors become out of step with the needs of novice learners. Program participants learned how to solve the Rubik’s cube with a group of colleagues to gain insight into the learning (and teaching) process, how that differs among learners and context, and pedagogical strategies that meet the specific needs of diverse learners. Viewers will hear the story of a cross-institutional professional development challenge where participants reconnected with the love of learning and receive support to conduct a similar activity elsewhere.
