Episode 15 - Emotion at Work in Memory & Learning

In this episode, you get to hear Nick Shackleton-Jones, Sukh Pabial & I explore and share our views of emotion, cognition, memory, and learning.  The conversation takes turns and explores areas I didn’t plan or expect and was really interesting all the same.
We talk about the affective context model where Nick suggests that as humans everything that we think, has an emotional basis behind it.  We talk about using repetition in learning, making things memorable and emotionally evocative, and how at times we just need to attend to what others are concerned about.
As we cover a lot of ground, there are a LOT of resources and links all listed below.
