Daily Prompt: You have to learn a new skill. Do you prefer to read about it, watch someone else do it, hear someone describe it, or try it yourself?
I do go on short courses to improve the work I do on occasion. When I do so I would most definitely have read up on the subject first, if possible watched whatever YouTube has to offer on the subject before I actually go on the course. When on that course I am an extremely hands on type of person, I have to do it myself in order to understand rather than just merely watching and listening. Most of the stuff I do is usually more on the creative side.
I do expect the person teaching me to know more on the subject than I do and the same applies to me when someone wants me to teach them. It is important to ascertain what level people are on and unfortunately this is often not done
