In Chapter 4 of 19 in his 2014 Capture Your Flag interview, strategist and management consultant Hammans Stallings answers "How Have You Learned to Distill Complex Concepts into Teachable Moments?" Stallings finds much of this has to do with recognizing learning patterns and waiting for the right conditions for a teachable moment to occur. To do this, Stallings looks for ways to create structures and parameters for students to get into a complex problem or topic, show interest, and be more receptive to that teachable moment when it occurs.
