Learning How to Learn: Powerful Mental Tools to Help You Master Tough Subjects

Barbara Oakley, instructor of Learning How to Learn (University of California-San Diego – Coursera)

Barbara Oakley, is the instructor of Learning How to Learn, one of the world’s largest student massive open online course, with nearly 3 million students.

In this presentation, she delves deep into the brain to present practically useful information about how you can more easily master new and difficult material.

• Learn from a neuroscientific perspective why it’s perfectly normal to not understand something difficult the first time you encounter it. You’ll see how to leverage your knowledge of how your brain works to do better on tests and to inoculate yourself (and the children in your life) against feelings of frustration and failure when something seems difficult to learn.

• See what the patterns of expertise look like in the brain, and learn how to build those patterns more quickly and with less frustration.

• Discover simple tools to tackle procrastination. (You might be surprised to learn that even just thinking about something you don’t like causes your brain to experience pain.)

• Learn the surprising advantages of having a bad memory and sometimes being a slower learner.
