Your Friday update from Learning How to Learn Jun 12, 2015

8th January 2017

Cheery Greetings, Learning How to Learners!

A brief request here to help Barb’s friends Dhawal Shah and Charlie Chung at Class Central, the great website that tells you about all the best MOOCs. If you could fill out this brief, 90-second survey, it would really help Class Central, and all of us, to better understand our awesome MOOC students.

Also, great recent news for teachers and professors! Penguin, the publisher of A Mind for Numbers, has made a special discounted examination copy of the book available for teachers and professors. So if you are a teacher or professor who is considering the book for course adoption, please go here.

Barb will be holding Learning How to Learn office hours/course meetups—she would LOVE to meet you! She’ll be at the following places (feel free to splurge on a coffee or smoothie to say thanks to the coffee shops that are hosting us).

  • Near Seattle, Washington, Sunday, June 14, 1:00 – 2:00 pm, Starbucks Coffee Shop, Lake Forest Park Town Centre, 17039 Bothell Way NE, Lake Forest Park, Washington.
  • In Silicon Valley, Tuesday, June 23rd, 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm Bean Scene Coffee Shop, 186 S Murphy Ave, Sunnyvale, California
  • In San Diego, California, Wednesday, July 1, 12:00 (noon) – 1:00 pm, in the Lobby of the Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego, 1 Market Place, San Diego, California. (Barb will be at the US News & World Report STEM Solutions Conference, panel 8F: Enlightening Minds, earlier that morning.)

This fall, Barb will be in South Africa and, tentatively, Singapore, Hong Kong, Vietnam, and China—more details are coming. She’d love to meet you on her travels!

In the meantime, as always, happy learning!

Barb Oakley, Terry Sejnowski, and the Learning How to Learn Team
