Our first winter MOOC, UCSD's Learning How to Learn, begins January 2nd at noon and lasts four weeks. Sign up. It's free. Use your existing Coursera account if you have one. Get one if you don't.
Topic for the first week: focused versus diffuse thinking
You don't need to register immediately. Our first get-together to discuss this new learning research will be Jan 11th in computer room B. So you have a week to think (diffusely) about it.
This course is taught by the amazing Barbara Oakley. We will soon have her newest book, A Mind for Numbers: How to Excel at Math and Science (Even If You Flunked Algebra), added to our library collection.
