The Teaching Company Offers Great Courses – A Great Way to Learn if You are Too Busy for College

I would love to work on a Ph.D.  Some truly outstanding teachers and college professors have succeeded in shaping me into what they referred to as a lifetime learner.   I loved college and would really love to study again.  Unfortunately, it would be beyond what I can handle right now to travel more than half of the year, write books, blogs, video scripts and white papers while working on a doctorate, even with a distance learning program. 

Fortunately, I ran across and ad in an airline magazine for the Teaching Company.   This innovative and extremely well-run company records the lectures of highly regarded university professors and sells them in audio and DVD format with companion guidebooks.  I have bought a couple of dozen courses from them and typically finish one or two each month.  Though I read an average of two books per week, there are benefits from listening to an outstanding faculty member deliver a semester’s worth of lectures that exceed what even a well-written book can usually deliver.  Being a diagnosed Dyslexic, the courses are also extremely easy for me to listen to and I feel that I retain a good bit of what I learn from them.

Listening to courses on history, political science, economics, psychology and other topics has helped me immensely as a keynote presenter, as an author and as someone who loves to learn new things.  Each professor offers a unique perspective and tons of great information.

I highly recommend these high content and professionally developed courses for those who love to learn.
