Learning How to Learn: Powerful mental tools to help you master tough subjects

Written 2 months ago
This course covers a vital life skill that most of us take for granted without question. In and accessible and clear way it covers what we need to understand about the brain, procrastination, illusions of learning, blockages to learning, memory, creative thinking, and so much more, in order to get a grasp on the process of learning itself. I shall use it in my own life. I have recommended to a friend who is already finding it useful. I am also using it to encourage my daughter in her studies, knowing that I am really helping her, not just hoping it will work out for her.

Thank you Barbara and Terence for recording this MOOC. What a blessing!

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

Written 13 hours ago
I took this course as a follow-on to Barbara Oakley's and Terry Sejnowski's Learning How To Learn course. Three comments:

1) Barbara and Terry recap on some of the material in Learning How To Learn, which is useful as it cements the learning.

2) They also develop some ideas, in particular, the coverage of the Pomodoro Technique for overcoming procrastination includes some very useful resources.

3) The process of taking the course helped me grapple with the reality of making a mindshift at my stage in life (mid-career), something I have to do as I was made redundant three months ago. It created a space to believe it is possible.

I can highly recommend this course.
