Opportunity Description

This course helps you learn the invaluable learning techniques used by experts in art, music, literature, math, science, sports, and several other subjects. Learning How to Learn: “Powerful Mental Tool to Help You Master Tough Subjects” will teach you how the brain uses two very different learning modes and how it encapsulates (“chunks”) information. Here, you will also learn about illusions of learning, memory techniques, dealing with procrastination, and best practices verified by research to be most effective in helping you become better at tough subjects.

With the use of these approaches, no matter what you would like to master and your skills are, you can change your thinking and change your life. If you’re struggling with learning tough subjects, you’ll face a structured number of practical techniques that walk you through what you need to do to do better in learning. This course can be taken apart from, contemporary with or prior to, its companion course, Mind shift. (Learning How to learn is more learning-focused, and Mind shift is more career-focused.)
