5 Jan

Take 8 minutes and check out this TED talk by Julian Treasure on the lost art of listening:

Treasure gives us 5 ways to improve our listening skills — I think his final tip on listening better is one that will be especially helpful this term in 401. In his final tip, he gives us the acronym RASA: receive, appreciate, summarize, and ask.

Not bad advice to consider.
