Have you ever been in the midst of a study session and wondered where you went so wrong? You studied for hours and it doesn't seem to matter. Maybe you have been paired with another person and you can't seem to change their mind. This course uncovers how individuals learn according to their unique ways of approaching the input, processing and interpretation of information. There are many facets to how individuals learn, whether it be from the neurological lens of the brain, to motivation, memory, cognition and much more. Gain practical skills that will bolster your capacity to engage in intellectual discussions, inquiry and resourcefulness. Tap into various ways people process information, as well as where their strengths may lie. Understand motivation, goal-setting and perception through multi-disciplinary approaches to learning. Learning is meta. How do you best learn and make connections? How do you get others to make those same connections? What if they don't? Research, discuss and implement learning strategies to help yourself and others, well...learn!
