Barbara Oakley on The AM Show about ‘Learning How to Learn’
Our International guest speaker Professor Barbara Oakley is a Professor of Engineering at Oakland University in Michigan. Over the past years, she has made a name for herself in promoting new and better ways of learning based on findings from neuroscience.
Her 2014 book A Mind For Numbers: How to Excel at Math and Science (Even If You Flunked Algebra) was a New York Times bestseller. A year later, she started the free online course Learning How to Learn: Powerful mental tools to help you master tough subjects. It has since become one of the most popular courses; over two million people have taken it.
We hosted a public lecture with Barbara Oakley on 1 May 2019. Before our event, she spoke to Duncan Garner on The AM Show about the science of learning.
