8th January 2017
Cheery Greetings to our Learning How to Learners!
Some of our wonderful Learning How to Learners have put together a Quizlet to help you in learning the key ideas of our course. Go here if you’d like to learn via Quizlet, and to help your fellow learners by adding new concepts!
Finding the Best Credentials
Our friends at Class Central are always working to enhance people’s careers through MOOCs. In fact, MOOC-based credentials like Coursera Specializations have the potential to allow millions of people to enhance their careers through high-quality skill-building. But for most learners and employers, the value of earning these credentials is uncertain–it is a chicken-and-egg problem of reputation and results. To help address this issue, Class Central just launched a fantastic new initiative where users can view these credentials and read user reviews from others who are actually enrolled in these programs, to help them decide if that credential is right for them. Visit Class Central’s Credentials page to learn more.
Barb is coming to Singapore and Asia!
In the latter part of October, Barb will be coming to Singapore and elsewhere Asia. (Hong Kong and Beijing are confirmed and Indonesia and Philippines might be in the pipeline!) If you might like her to speak for your educational institution or organization to play a part in spreading the joy of learning how to learn, please contact Vernie Leow at Adam Khoo Learning Technologies Group, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a happy week in Learning How to Learn!
Barb, Terry, and the entire Learning How to Learn team
Barb will be in Milan, Italy, speaking on Learning How to Learn at the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Conference (Room Amber 8) 12:45-14:15 on Friday, August 28th. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to go into the session unless you register for the day. But right after the session, at about 14:30, Barb will go down to the conference registration area so she can meet up with anyone who is there and we can go outside and sit in the lovely Italian sunshine and talk all about learning!
