Peter Honey articles by e-mail


Peter Honey's personal musings on learning and behaviour have long been a key part of his output, be it as magazine articles or more recently, as featured on

In the last few months, he's launched a bi-weekly newsletter aimed at condensing some of his thinking for an internet audience. January's e-mail newsletters contain a variety of short articles, including features on 'ways to help people to learn and develop' and 'a thought-provoking saying about learning and development' which will appear in the newsletters on a regular basis.

This month, 'ways to help people learn and develop' has touched on the importance of noting down what has been learned, even if peope find it difficult to describe exactly what they've learned, and examines how people can act as a sounding board for others to talk through and resolve their problems.

Peter also includes contributions from colleagues, such as an article by Professor Ian Cunningham, who says if you're always asked to prove learning is worthwhile, why not ask why learning is not worthwhile.

Other items include a glimpse into the contents of Peter's Little Red Book, which he uses to jot down thoughts and ideas throughout the day, and which includes jokes and sayings related to learning, and a brief exploration of how and why people are motivated to learn. There are also books for recommended reading.

Once you've got used to Peter's very personal style of writing, many of these articles are a worthwhile read - he draws directly on personal experience to make some very pertinent comments on the whys and wherefores of learning. To find out more, visit
