Optimizing your Learning of Science and Engineering [EN]

Lecture Description

A symposium was held, inviting Dr.Carl Wieman, a Nobel Prize winner in Physics.

Over the past few decades a great deal has been learned about the thinking processes of experts, particularly scientists and engineers, and how learners can most efficiently develop those useful adaptive high-level thinking skills.Most notable is the finding that such skills are developed, not innate, but quite specific mental processes are required for their development.The research shows that much of what university students are told by their teachers as to how to best learn is not correct. Dr.Wieman discusses the nature of those expert thinking processes and how students can apply this research to guide and improve their own studying and learning.
