Overview

With the advancement of technology, the world of learning and understanding has faced a challenge of information bombardment. We have too much data available but not enough time to process it.

You need to know how to sift through the piles of information thrown at you, and so Dr. Barbara Oakley and Dr. Terrence Sejnowski are here to help. Dr. Oakley has been teaching industrial and systems engineering at McMaster University, and is highly regarded in global digital learning for her efforts to teach students how to prepare for and crack exams smartly. Dr. Sejnowski is the Francis Crick Professor at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies and is known for his work in computational neuroscience.

Dr. Oakley and Dr. Sejnowski have arranged a comfortable online setting to learn how to learn. But first, you need to know how you think, focus, and absorb patterns. In addition to learning all of that, you will learn how to avoid procrastination, and how to work on building and expanding your short-term and long-term memories, as well as easy and effective ways to manage stress during tough situations.
