The first step to respect differences in learning is to recognize the value of other learning approaches. Such recognition doesn’t require agreement, but if you understand how others have learned, you comprehend better their decisions and actions, respectfully.

The second step is to approach other’s learning experiences with empathy and constructively. Differences only divide in the absence of respect. When people respect each other, differences are a way of mutual enrichment.

The third step is to contrast different ways of learning similar things creatively. True innovation often emerges from this contrast. But we need intellectual openness and a humble mindset to recognize the novelty inside differences.
