            Learning How to Learn
            Powerful Mental Tools to Help You Master Tough Subjects
            Are you a student who wants to know how to master new material easily and quickly, or a corporate employee learning a new language, or a teacher who is looking for the best practices in teaching experience? Are you a person who understands the importance of life-long learning and want to make the process of learning more effective?
            Then you should definitely join Barbara Oakly's workshop, during which she will give you some useful information about how you can more easily master new and difficult material.

            • Learn why it's perfectly normal to not understand something difficult the first time its encountered. You'll see how knowledge of how the brain works that can help improve test scores and protect 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.
            Dr. Oakley's previous book, A Mind for Numbers, is a New York Times and international best-seller translated into over a dozen languages. Her most recent book is the popular "Learning How to Learn: How to Succeed in School Without Spending All Your Time Studying; A Guide for Kids and Teens"
            How Neuroscience Is Changing What We Know about Learning
            Practical Insights for Instructors
            Instructors often have a feel for what they're supposed to be teaching in the classroom. But they often don't know why.

            This workshop will provide practical insights, using recent light microscopy imagery and neural animations, about how the brain learns. By seeing the restrictions of working memory, for example, you'll gain a better idea of how to structure teaching to avoid student cognitive overload. And by understanding the changes that good teaching can make in students' brains, you'll gain a better idea of how to help students neurally encode information, concepts, and techniques into long-long term memory—the essence of learning. This in-depth information, accompanied by active exercise will help you fine tune your approach to effective teaching.

            We'll also cover advice for frequent problem areas for students such as procrastination, lack of focus, and lack of motivation. We will then move to a more theoretical framework to discuss issues such as the effect size of different instructional interventions; biologically primary versus biologically secondary material and the relationship of these materials with student versus teacher centered learning; how to sniff out educational fads; and the role of learning individual facts in allowing the hippocampus (and students!) to develop a feel for overall patterns.

            Professor Barbara Oakley is the instructor of the world's most popular massive open online course, Learning How to Learn, and is the author of the New York Times best-selling book A Mind for Numbers.
