Everything You Thought You Knew About Learning Is Wrong
Learning through osmosis didn't make the strategies list image courtesy of Flickr user indi.ca Taking notes during class? Topic-focused study? A consistent learning environment? All are exactly opposite the best strategies for learning. Really, I recently had the good fortune to interview Robert Bjork, director of the UCLA Learning and Forgetting Lab, distinguished professor of psychology, and massively renowned expert on packing things in your brain in a way that keeps them from leaking out. Here's what he said. First, think about how you attack a pile of study material. Instead of making an appreciable leap forward with yourserving ability after a session of focused practice, interleaving forces you to make nearly imperceptible steps forward with many skills. There’s one caveat: Make sure the mini skills you interleave are related in some higher-order way. And again, these tips generalize. The more you work, the more you learn, and the more you learn, the more awesome you can become.
