Dr Terrence Sejnowski Dr Barbara Oakley – Learning How to Learn [51 MP4s]
Learning How to Learn is for you—it’s meant to give you practical insight on how to learn more deeply and with less frustration. The lessons in this course can help you in learning many different subjects and skills. Whether you love language or math, music or physics, psychology or history, you’ll have a lot of fun, and learn a LOT about how to learn! This is a 4-week course. Learning with others is more fun, so please feel free to share this course and these ideas with your friends and family. We’ve found that learners become so excited about these ideas that they can’t help sharing them with those in their circles—and with new friends made on the discussion forums through this course. Sharing helps build your own abilities! We’ve set up a Facebook page to let people know about the MOOC. Please feel free to go to the page and share if you like it and the course, (and give us a “like”)! We also have a Twitter hashtag on the course, #LH2L1 (for “Learning How to Learn, Session 1”). Although not required, we also encourage you to read the material on the week’s topics in the book, A Mind for Numbers, where some of these ideas are explored more deeply. A Mind for Numbers is available through Amazon US, Amazon UK, Barnes & Noble, and Indiebound. For international learners, A Mind for Numbers is available through both the Amazon Kindle and IBook–please just check availability within your country. Incidentally, don’t worry if you’re not a “numbers” person, A Mind for Numbers is still for you, because it’s a general book about learning. As the Library Journal just noted in their review: “VERDICT Superb not only for those who are struggling or who are expert at math, but for readers who wish to think and comprehend more efficiently.”Every Friday at 12:00 PM EST, the weekly content will be posted for the weekend and the upcoming week. (This website can help you figure out timezones and deadlines.)

More information about Self Help:
Self-help or self-improvement is a self-guided improvement—economically, intellectually, or emotionally—often with a substantial psychological basis.
Many different self-help group programs exist, each with its own focus, techniques, associated beliefs, proponents and in some cases, leaders.
Concepts and terms originating in self-help culture and Twelve-Step culture, such as recovery, dysfunctional families, and codependency have become firmly integrated in mainstream language.
Self-help often utilizes publicly available information or support groups, on the Internet as well as in person, where people in similar situations join together.
From early examples in self-driven legal practice and home-spun advice, the connotations of the word have spread and often apply particularly to education, business,
psychology and psychotherapy, commonly distributed through the popular genre of self-help books.
According to the APA Dictionary of Psychology, potential benefits of self-help groups that professionals may not be able to provide include friendship,
emotional support, experiential knowledge, identity, meaningful roles, and a sense of belonging.
