Learning a new skill this year?
Putting your mind to learn programming?
Looking to wow folks with your newly acquired French?
A professional exam, you want to ace?
And yet, as you look back over years of broken resolutions, you think it might not be worth it?
That you aren’t cut out for learning physics on your own if you wanted to?
That you are “slow”?
Maybe that’s just because you haven’t realised that learning itself is a skill?
That you need to learn, how to learn?
Barbara Oakley has been teaching this critical skill for a few years now.
Her course on Learning How to Learn is the most popular course in the world.
How do you beat procrastination?
Do we still need to memorise?
How important is sleep?
What is learning?
Barbara takes you through all these and dives deeper into brain chemistry and modes of learning and a whole lot more!
At the end, you get prepared to learn anything.
Barbara’s story also serves as tremendous inspiration. A girl who flunked Maths & Science as a kid is now a distinguished professor of engineering.
The course is spread over 4 weeks
And it’s free!
The only thing that is needed of you is to commit.
And even that is not too much. 12-15 hours spread over 4 weeks.
You can go enroll in the course here.
If you are pressed for time or are a student, you can go enroll in the youth oriented version of the course here.
And hurry! Today is the last day to enroll.
Imagine spending 15 measly hours to learn a skill that will then enable you to learn and master anything that you set your mind to!
Here’s to a Happy New Year full of learning!
P.S. As a Happy New Year to me, you could do me a favor and forward this mail to folks and asking them to subcribe to the list here.
