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.

Great course! This is a lot more general than Learning about Learning but is also useful nonetheless. I like the focus on keeping positive and being confident in your potential despite our weaknesses.

Great! A course that helps you to learn how your brain works and get yourself learning new things into another level. Although I have studied many similar courses and books, this book is good and recommended. Instructor took her real life example into the course materials.

The course is quite easy to follow; and most importantly, it is really interesting and helpful. I would recommend this course for beginners in online learning as it serves as a smooth transition to learning your own learning capabilities in regards to time, style, etc...

I am happy to learn ways to learn. Also, to be reminded that change while is inevitable should not be seen as negative but a positive. I like that the course also have ways to stop procrastination because I am a procrastinator. It is so bad. It is affecting my thesis.

Mindshift is a course that effectively builds upon Learning How to Learn in a way that encourages thinking beyond the comfortable, beyond what is already known. Both of these courses are inspiring and should be taken by everyone interested in the process of learning.

Mindshift was well laid out and very easy to follow. Barbara Oakley is very accessible and explains things well. I love the idea that any of us can learn anything at any age with time and practice. I look forward to trying these techniques as I take more courses.

I couldn't be more thankful to the professors who created this useful and motivating online class. I enrolled this class as the first MOCC and it was really good to start with Mindshift class. If you are new to MOCC, this is the best recommended class to start with.

This course has broaden my dimensions of thinking and vision about learning. Instead of conventional approaches we should revisit our potentials and we will find under-rated skills which are playing an important role in our success so far. Thanks for this mindshift!

The course was very good, I had many new perspectives and thought more about my way of thinking. I really like the metaphor of a double-ended yellow pencil as if you need to expand your passion, challenge a lot, and learn more about your forte. Thank you ~ everyone

Wonderful course! very interesting and useful. I enjoyed a lot because the teachers were excellent. It is a pity it is short.... I think this kind of course should be available for all the students at the Secondary School, because it helps you to open your mind.

I think this is a great MOOC to get you into MOOCing and therefore getting the necessary skills to do a real mindshift.

On the other hand many of the ideas here are not new, but are presented under a different light therefore making it more interesting.

Really good!!
