Learning How to Learn

Improving my own ability to learn is a topic that interests me a great deal. My intention with this page is having a living document where I update over time, consolidating ideas, thoughts and resources on the subject of “learning how to learn”.

The “Learning How to Learn” Course by Barbara Oakley

The course can be watched at Coursera and has a legendary status by now in learning communities.

I consider it a “must watch”, as it introduces neuroscience research about how our brain and memory work, in an approachable manner with plenty of analogies and a visual component.

It also warns about common pitfalls during the learning process, and provides useful and practical techniques for studying, retaining more information over time, and dealing with procrastination.
