Fully Customisable Training Course Material: Description

“Learning isn’t a means to an end; it is an end in itself.”

Robert Heinlein

The skill of learning is perhaps the most important skill to master. Without an efficient process, any learning will be slow, frustrating and most often short-lived. In any subject or area, most people fail to succeed to become experts. The main reason is not because they don’t have what it takes, but because they don’t know how to learn the skill.

Contrary to common belief, research in the past 30 years shows that talent is not given, it is earned. Those who earn it use a rigorous, systematic and persistent approach that makes them stand out from the competition and lead them to become known experts in their respective fields.

There is an art in learning and anyone can master this art. This course aims to approach learning on two fronts; one is that it is important to have the right attitude and mentality without which no learning tool will help. The second is to be aware of multitude of learning tools which help with the actual process of learning. These include managing the environment and reducing distraction, learning shortcuts, planning, evaluation and using memory & creativity tools.

These two areas are covered through the courses in various sessions and the underlying mentality, which is deemed to be critical for learning, is stressed at every opportunity to demonstrate its importance and applicability with the context of each session.

The course is designed with several exercises that help delegates examine their current methodologies and then based on the content of the course get to review and improve various aspects of their learning process.

Interactive exercises along with case studies and examples are provided so that delegates can review scenarios where an individual’s attempts at learning fail. This can help delegates to improve their own learning performance.

There is considerable amount of content, discussions, exercises and also optional content in this course. If you have many delegates, you can easily extend the course to cover 1.5 days.

Delegates will learn ...

By the end of this course the delegates will be able to:

  • Discover your learning style to better focus your efforts
  • Engineer your environment to reduce distractions
  • Improve your will-power and focus by carefully controlling your environment
  • Learn what it takes to become an expert and adopt the right mentality to achieve it
  • Plan your learning, use learning tools to increase your learning and evaluate yourself based on your objectives
  • Unblock barriers to learning when feeling stuck
  • Use a systematic approach to build a routine that can increase the efficiency of your learning

The Philosophy Behind Learning to Learn Training Course

Learning, ultimately, is an attitude and the main objective of this course to instil this attitude in delegates. Learning is exciting and people should feel that they can learn any skill, if they give it enough time and approach it the right way.

With the exception of some sports where physical characteristics such as height can have an influence in the mastery of the skill, almost all skills can be mastered by anyone. The belief to mastery is the key in successful learning and if this course can succeed in convincing delegates on this claim, the rest is easy.

Learning to Learn -  Become an Expert

What Does it Take to Become an Expert

As with other training materials from Skills Converged, the course is designed to maximise interaction and discussions so delegates can learn from each other and be fully engaged throughout the course. A detailed trainer’s script is provided so you know when to initiate discussions at each point, what case studies to present and explore and how to lead the discussion to a particular learning objective.

The course is can be used as a template for teaching how to learn as you can easily customise it based on your delegates. As a result, you can easily target it to people in business environments as well as to students.
