Mindshift: Break Through Obstacles to Learning and Discover Your Hidden Potential

 with  Dr. Barbara Oakley and Dr. Terrence Sejnowski
Class Central Course Rank
#2 in Subjects > Personal Development

Mindshift is designed to help boost your career and life in today’s fast-paced learning environment. Whatever your age or stage, Mindshift teaches you essentials such as how to get the most out of online learning and MOOCs, how to seek out and work with mentors, the secrets to avoiding career ruts (and catastrophes) and general ruts in life, and insights such as the value of selective ignorance over general competence. We’ll provide practical insights from science about how to learn and change effectively even in maturity, and we’ll build on what you already know to take your life’s learning in fantastic new directions. This course is designed to show you how to look at what you’re learning, and your place in what’s unfolding in the society around you, so you can be what you want to be, given the real world constraints that life puts on us all. You’ll see that by using certain mental tools and insights, you can learn and do more—far more—than you might have ever dreamed!

This course can be taken independent of, concurrent with, or subsequent to, its companion course, Learning How to Learn. (Mindshift is more career focused, and Learning How to Learn is more learning focused.)

Syllabus

Change IS possible
In today's world, change is the only constant. This means that whatever stage you are in life, you need to keep yourself open and able to change. How can you do this? In three ways: Learn more about your hidden capabilities and assets. Learn more about learning effectively. Learn about matching your assets with the opportunities that face you. In this week, we'll dive into these three important areas!

Getting Deeper into Happy Learning
Key to your ability to mindshift is being able to learn effectively. This week, we’ll dive deeper into this vital area. Getting yourself motivated to tackle procrastination can sometimes be a challenge in learning, so we’ll give you some important tips here. But we’ll also give insights into mental tricks to help you focus, relax, and reframe if stress intrudes. We’ll also show you how to avoid common learning pitfalls. Welcome and enjoy!

Learning and Careers
This week, we’ll be talking about how your own career can develop and change through your life. Your own internal feelings about what you want to do can play a critical role in your long-term happiness. But society and culture can also have a dramatic effect on your career choices and decisions—as can your parents, family, and friends. We’ll talk about second-skilling yourself, and developing a talent stack of average talents that can combine into a formidable asset. We’ll also talk about various tactics and techniques to help you survive career changes and upheavals. Welcome and enjoy!

Adopting a Learning Lifestyle
In this final week of the course, we'll be exploring how and why to keep yourself in "mindshift" mode. We'll give you all sorts of insider tips on how to pick out the best online learning with materials that are right for you. And we'll also talk about other ways of learning—ways that can make you "the smartest person in the room." Disruption lies ahead in the world—this week, we'll help you seize the advantage. Off we go for our final week of Mindshift!

Love the optional interviews! Those videos are gold!

Thank you Nelson for the awesome memory tools! The top 10 populated countries, the tallest buildings, and the grocery lists scattered in your apartment. It's so funny, I can still (slowly but surely) remember them!

This was an excellent MOOC not only because of the content but also the variety in the presentation. The subject matter can be understood quickly and applied immediately. Colorful graphics and helpful metaphors introduce complicated topics in an easy-to-comprehend method. Also, bonus sections on techniques for memorization are available each week.

Dr. Barbara Oakley recorded the bulk of the instruction and Dr. Terrence Sejnowski also provided complementary information each week. (Full disclosure, I also completed "Learning How to Learn" MOOC and the setting is so intimate, I want to call the instructors "Barbara" and "Terry". ) I highly recommend this course to life-long learners, young or young-at-heart.

I completed this course as an auditor. I had taken the Learning How to Learn course previously, and this followed similar ideas. I learned a lot, and the videos were fun to watch, although the people jumping around the page so much was a bit distracting. Barbara Oakley is an appealing speaker, and I liked how she intertwined her personal experiences with scientific information. This is a good course for people at any level of education, and I felt it was inspiring for me.

With a modest investment over 4 weeks, the journey is a pleasure and the course can have a big influence in your life. Take this course.

This course might be best as a "preview" to the more practical techniques taught in "Learning How To Learn". It is a good guideline for anyone wondering about how to cope with modern change or still looking for how to get into a particular career.

I "audited" and even with the "Honors Assignments" I don't think that anyone would really gain more from the "Paid" version with the Certificate. It might be better to just ask for "donations" if you liked the course than to require a fee.

It's short length, engaging teachers and general topic make it a great MOOC for anyone trying out online learning for the first time!

I once called its predecessor, Learning How to Learn, “super insightful, revealing, engaging -- and by far, just unparallelled course” -- but it’s been surpassed by this new, significantly upgraded sequel!

You’ll likely to feel like it can change your whole life! Enjoy! ;)

There are many factors that enhance learning and Mindshift helps you think of those factors as you are learning and preparing to learn. This is a short 4 week course (that you can complete in one or two weeks) and each video draws you in to a different concept of learning that is important to consider. Age 12 through retirement who wants to enhance learning time and application would do well to consider the ideas presented in the Mindshift MOOC.

It emphasizes "learning" and not just passing or completing MOOCs or any other instruction. Having started several MOOCS in the past but not completing them all, I felt like I failed but after taking this course, I realized that not all courses are a good fit and sometimes it takes several attempts to master certain subjects. The main thing is to keep trying.

It would be nice if there was a further progression after completing the course, something more specific, more one an one, that could further our individual journeys.

A good course. If you liked "Learning how to Learn" you may enjoy this one, too. A bit of repetition of the first course. But that is not necessarily a bad thing.
