Shiny new things!


Unedited transcript of the video above

Hey, for the love of learning, you know, hashtag forever student. And so I'm Sabrina Brando, I'm the director of AnimalConcepts. And I've been, you know, in the field of animal care and well being for 30 years. And the other day with some friends and colleagues, we were talking about how sometimes we can become like these magpies that are like collecting, you know, all kinds of new shiny things like knowledge, or impressions and ideas, and so on. And but we don't necessarily take that information or those ideas, and use them with the animals or, you know, embed them into our programs or something like that. So and actually, the research on the magpies is out on this thing about collecting, but we tend to say that right, shiny new things. And so it reminded me of some of the work that I've seen by Jim quick, who helps people with knowledge and learning and reading, and he has these three questions that I find useful about, you know, why would I use this? So when you see something, when you read something, like, why would I use that? Like, how is this relevant? Is this something, you know, that I could implement? Or apply? And also, how would I use it? So maybe you're seeing information from another species from another field or even, like something completely unrelated to animals, but you might realize this is something that maybe I could adapt, right? And then also when and that is always one of my favourites. Also, with regards to action animal well being is about the now very much. So how do we take action, you know, so how will I use that new knowledge? Or that new idea or that other, you know, content that I've seen somewhere or somebody told me about and how can I you know, use that so yeah, thought to just share with you how these three questions helped me in the work that I do. And also, you know, how do we move from all these wonderful ideas and content that is out there to apply it to working with the animals and improving animal wellbeing continuously. Alright, take care.
