Learning To Learn

Some folks erroneously believe that learning ability is an intelligence matter. Learning for them is an immutable trait like the color of the eye or just luck of the genetic draw.

Either you’re born as a learner or you’re not so why drive yourself into petty perturbance over a non-issue. Just do what you can and leave the rest. And that’s why, without much emphasis, most people tend not to approach the subject of education. They don’t really think about how they’re going to develop a mastery zone.

We use expressions such as “practice makes good” without taking the training technique into account. It is, after all, a curiously vague expression. Would repetition mean constantly practicing the same skill? Do you need input from the practice? Should it be difficult to practice? Or should that be fun?

An increasing volume of research shows that “infinite learners” are made, not born. We can all gain skills faster and more effectively through the intentional use of training and committed approaches to improve our ability to learn. In short, in order to get better, we can all get better.

With the disruptive nature of our emerging technologies, we are constantly getting the news of the latest startup, or app that has knocked off one human task ability feature off the list of human jobs. And so the workplace continues to be increasingly automated.

Thus, the fear over the future of work. 2017 Report from Mckinsey Global Institute predicts that 20 million jobs cutting across areas affecting; Travel Agents, Cashiers, Librarians, Postal Couriers, Bank Tellers, Textile Workers, The Print Industry, Sports Referees and Umpires amongst others will be lost to AI and automation in 2030.

In this kind of world, how do you manage to keep yourself relevant? It turns out that what you learn today might be relevant tomorrow. The key, therefore, lies in learning how to learn, unlearn and relearn. The most important skill indeed in the world today is the skill of learning, knowing how to learn.

This course has been specially designed to help understand how your own brain functions and how to tap into this knowledge to perfect the art of learning so as to remain ever relevant in a world of rapid disruptions.

3. Know what is required for effective learning
4. You will learn how to make learning a lifelong hobby
