Favorite FSE Value

Favorite FSE Value

Foster a community of learning and collaboration! Social learning theories have helped me realize that learning is a social act and it is best achieved in a collaborative environment. The capabilities of a community that belives in learning are far greater than that of the individual to influence change aimed at innovation.
