     Illusions of Knowing: Why Everything You've Heard                                               About Learning is Wrong

                         (And How You Can Learn Better)

 

 

Whether you're a student studying for an exam, a traveler trying to learn Italian before heading out to Sicily, a teacher trying to help students understand a difficult idea, or a business trainer trying to help your sales force learn the ins and outs of a new market, we're all living in a world that requires life-long learning. The problem is that much of what we've been told about learning is wrong. "Reread your notes." "Practice makes perfect." "Play to your strengths." "Find your learning style." "In the age of Google, we should focus on skills instead of knowledge." Much of this well-intentioned advice has been debunked by cognitive science. In this workshop we'll use puzzles and problems to gain insight into how people actually learn and how we can learn faster and more effectively.

 

 

Ben Lord is a high school science teacher and writer who lives in Vermont. Four years ago, he had a ninth-grade student who put in hours of studying and who still barely passed biology. In an effort to help students like her, he began reading papers in cognitive science and found out that most of the study advice that he'd been giving students was wrong. Since then, he's taught effective learning strategies to high school students and teachers of all grade levels through his User's Guide to Your Brain seminars.

    Location: Library Meeting Room
        There are 39 spaces available.
