À propos du cours

Mindshift is designed to help boost your career and life in today’s fast-paced learning environment. Whatever your age or stage, Mindshift teaches you essentials such as how to get the most out of online learning and MOOCs, how to seek out and work with mentors, the secrets to avoiding career ruts (and catastrophes) and general ruts in life, and insights such as the value of selective ignorance over general competence. We’ll provide practical insights from science about how to learn and change effectively even in maturity, and we’ll build on what you already know to take your life’s learning in fantastic new directions. This course is designed to show you how to look at what you’re learning, and your place in what’s unfolding in the society around you, so you can be what you want to be, given the real world constraints that life puts on us all. You’ll see that by using certain mental tools and insights, you can learn and do more—far more—than you might have ever dreamed! This course can be taken independent of, concurrent with, or subsequent to, its companion course, Learning How to Learn. (Mindshift is more career focused, and Learning How to Learn is more learning focused.)...

I enjoyed this course very much. I am 64-years-old and this course taught me that you can learn anything new no matter what age you are. I am now broadening my passions and learning is a lot more fun.

I enjoyed this MOOC. It is very well-done and clearly covers the topics of mindshifting along with career advancement. Also--good illustrations and visuals/sounds which assist in the learning process.

This course talks about all the difficulties and worries one may face in life when the person does a mind-shift. The good part is this it gives solutions and techniques, which actually works. Most importantly the whole course is very engaging and relaxing.

This course is a great course to change your mindset about yourself, life, how you think about yourself and your work. It is great to use the tools given to have a better life and breakthrough in areas that have not been paid attention to about yourself.

Mindshift has sparked in me the desire to learn and keep taking more MOOCs to advance/change my career. I really enjoyed Barbara and would enlist in any other course she decided to teach. Well crafted and conveyed and always kept me motivated to complete.

A real mind shift and an eye-opener for me; I gained a lot taking this short course. It's worthwhile that I've shared my learning with my wife and applied an immediate effect to redirect my passion-reality, private and career path altogether in one place.

I enjoyed and learned some useful things from this course, and was reminded of things I haven't thought about for a long time. A good refresher/primer for thinking about how to approach learning before diving into other MOOCs (in my case technical ones).

Like "Learnig how to learn", it´s a wonderfull MOOC. Have a lot of processes on your brain that we don´t understand and it´s really helpfull to know about that. Have a lot of tips to have a better physical and mental health. Thank you about the feedback!

Thanks to Dr. Barbara Oakley and Dr. Terrence Sejnowski for Mindshift. It was a wonderful course. One of the interesting things it taught me is to broaden my skills rather than those that are my passion. I am actively working on it. Thank you so much :)

This is the best MOOC I have ever learned. Professor Barbara Oakley is a very engaging person. One thing I just wanted to suggest is that the quality of videos could have been better. I just love this course. Thank you so much, Coursera and Mindshift.

Truly amazing! Even though I am a middle age lifelong learner already, this pushed my boundaries of what I thought possible for myself. I learned loads and also reframed some of the issues I had with topics I always wanted to learn, but struggled with.

Talking style of Barbara Ma'm attracting me most and this is the 1st reason I have completed this course. She has talked wonderfully about many things, I am amazed by those. Now I want to do the course "Learning how to learn".

Great course using neuroscience to make sense of common problems we face in the journey of learning! I finished the course in 1.5 week by speeding up the videos. All the speakers are very eloquent and the quiz is a great review to ensure comprehension
