Mindshift is designed to help boost your career and life in todayâ€™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. Weâ€™ll provide practical insights from science about how to learn and change effectively even in maturity, and weâ€™ll build on what you already know to take your lifeâ€™s learning in fantastic new directions. This course is designed to show you how to look at what youâ€™re learning, and your place in whatâ€™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. Youâ€™ll see that by using certain mental tools and insights, you can learn and do moreâ€”far moreâ€”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.)
