When it comes to learning something new, it’s common to get hungry for more information and get your hands on different sources. Attending a workshop is just the tip of the iceberg, and you’d naturally gravitate towards further studies of the subject or getting to practice what you learned. The good news is this is how learning is meant to be experienced!
Learning in multiple ways from different sources boosts the brain’s capability to retain the information you’ve gathered. Whether this is a new skill that you’d like to apply at work or information you need for your exam in the next couple of weeks, studies show that the one-and-done approach isn’t effective when it comes to digesting new info.
For instance, after attending an in-person workshop, you may want to look at videos or articles online related to the subject, so you can broaden your understanding. You can even touch base with people in your area who are experts on the topic or with fellow trainees from whom you can learn something new, too.
In this post, we’ve compiled different resources that you can use, both online and offline, to speed up your learning and invest in your professional development. After all, one of the ingredients to success is to keep on learning. Here’s how you can educate yourself efficiently.

The internet has not only made the world a smaller place, but it has dramatically influenced just how easy it is to learn new things, too. If you’re looking for ideas on where to find a cool short course or maybe watch an educational video during your commute to work, we’ve got you covered with this list.
There are still advantages to attending face-to-face learning opportunities like workshops and seminars. The chance to network during these meet-ups is incomparable to online learning opportunities. If solo learning is your thing, there’s also an offline counterpart for that. Here are more examples where offline learning can take place.
Your community might hold meet-ups in your area to talk about your shared interests and exchange information you’ve learned in the respective workshops you’ve attended. Try searching for events near you that cater to your specific interests.
You could touch base with subject matter experts, professors, or prominent figures in your industry and undergo an apprenticeship with them. This could be someone whose seminar you’ve attended or a teacher you’ve had in school. The length and scope could vary depending on your agreement.
You could go for continuing education options and look at schools that offer short courses, depending on your interests and location. A popular example is a fashion or interior design short course.
Nothing wrong with self-studying if that’s what you prefer! Buying textbooks or borrowing from your local library are great ways to do some further research on a topic. This idea will fly better for those who prefer some quiet time when soaking up new information.
You can sign up for local one-day workshops or weekend seminars provided by reputable organizations in your area. From business and professional classes to artsy ones, this is probably one of the most popular ways you can learn a new skill.
If you’re looking for workshops you can attend, you can hop onto Guthrie-Jensen’s Public Seminars page for more information. You’ll see a list of our best-selling programs, like our 5-Day MBA program in Metro Manila and Cebu, and get a chance to experience premium learning opportunities in your area.
There are a lot of opportunities nowadays to beef up and add to your existing skillsets. To adapt to the ever-changing needs of the professional landscape, it’s wise to train yourself as much as you can and enjoy yourself in the process. Whether you choose online learning, offline, or both, you’ll definitely end up a winner. Learning something new is priceless!
