Cheery update from Learning How to Learn! May 23, 2015
8th January 2017
Hello, Learning How to Learners!
We hope you’re having a great week! All is going well in Learning How to Learn–you are currently joined with some 220,000 learners in this On Demand version of the course, which shows how popular and useful learning how to learn can be!
Help with writing
If you’ve been thinking about doing final project, or you have trouble with the writing process on your job or in your studies, you might want to watch this bonus interview with top writing coach Daphne Gray-Grant. This is one of the most popular bonus interviews on Learning How to Learn, and there’s a good reason for that.
Help with anxiety, depression, and PTSD
A popular and inspiring post about anxiety, depression, and PTSD from the previous session-based version of Learning How to Learn has been moved into the On Demand version of the course. If you face any of those challenges, you may wish to read the wonderful posting, which can now be found here.
A great upcoming MOOC
If you want even more inspiration, you might wish to sign up for the upcoming MOOC A Life of Happiness and Fulfillment, by Barb’s friend, “Dr. Happy-Smarts” (also known as Prof. Raj Raghunathan) of the Indian School of Business. The course is full of great information and has many guest lectures by some of the most important researchers in psychology, including Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Dan Ariely, and Barbara Fredrickson.
A cool summer camp
Lastly, we’ve become aware of a unique summer enrichment opportunity, Adventures of the Mind, for talented teens to help inspire them to broaden their passions by introducing them to a faculty of accomplished adult achievers that include Nobel prize winners, MacArthur geniuses, Pulitzer prize winners, best-selling novelists, and tech titans. Scholarships are available for qualifying students. The curriculum focuses on decision making and financial literacy using chess and poker. Students can apply directly and educators can nominate here.
Happy learning, and good luck with your next module!
