360 MB (378,290,220 bytes) Learning is a lifelong adventure. It starts
in your mothers womb, accelerates to high speed in infancy and
childhood, and continues through every age, whether youre actively
engaged in mastering a new skill, intuitively discovering an
unfamiliar place, or just sleeping, which is fundamental to helping
you consolidate and hold on to what youve learned. You are truly born
to learn around the clock. But few of us know how we learn, which is
the key to learning and studying more effectively. For example, you
may be surprised by the following: People tend to misjudge what they
have learned well, what they dont yet know, and what they do and do
not need to practice. Moments of confusion, frustration, uncertainty,
and lack of confidence are part of the process of acquiring new skills
and new knowledge. Humans and animals explore their worlds for the
sake of learning, regardless of rewards and punishment connected with
success. You can teach an old dog new tricks. In fact, older learners
have the benefit of prior knowledge and critical skills--two
advantages in learning. Shedding light on whats going on when we
learn and dispelling common myths about the subject, How We Learn
introduces you to this practical and accessible science in 24
half-hour lectures presented by Professor Monisha Pasupathi of the
University of Utah, an award-winning psychology teacher and expert on
how people of all ages learn. A Course about You Customers of The
Great Courses are already devoted to lifelong learning and may be
surprised at how complicated the process of learning is. We have a
single word for it--learn--but it occurs in a fascinating variety of
ways, which Professor Pasupathi recounts in detail. She describes a
wide range of experiments that may strike a familiar chord as you
recognize something about yourself or others: Scripts: We have trouble
recalling specific events until we have first learned scripts for
those events. Young children are prodigious learners of scripts, but
so are first-time parents, college freshmen, foreign travelers, and
new employees. Variable ratio reinforcement: Children whining for
candy are usually refused, but the few occasions when parents give in
encourage maximal display of the behavior. The same principle is
behind the success of slot machines and other unpredictable rewards.
Storytelling: Telling stories is fundamentally an act of learning
about ourselves. The way we recount experiences, usually shortly after
the event, has lasting effects on the way we remember those
experiences and what we learn from them. Sleeper effect: Have you ever
heard something from an unreliable source and later found yourself
believing it? Over time, we tend to remember information but forget
the source. Paradoxically, this effect is stronger when the source is
less credible. Dr. Pasupathis many examples cover the modern history
of research on learning--from behaviorist theory in the early 20th
century to the most recent debates about whether IQ can be separated
from achievement, or whether a spectrum of different learning styles
and multiple intelligences really exist. What You Will Learn You start
by examining 10 myths about learning. These can get in the way of
making the fullest use of the extraordinary capacity for learning and
include widespread beliefs, such as that college-educated people
already know how to maximize learning or that a person must be
interested in a subject in order to learn it. Professor Pasupathi then
covers mistaken theories of learning, such as that lab animals and
humans learn in the same way or that the brain is a tabula rasa, a
blank slate that can absorb information without preparation. Babies
might seem to be a counterexample, showing that you can learn from
scratch. However, you examine what newborns must know at birth in
order for them to learn so much, so quickly. Next you explore in depth
how humans master different tasks, from learning a native language or
a second language, to becoming adept at a sport or a musical
instrument, to learning a new city or a problem-solving strategy, to
grasping the distinctive style of thinking required in mathematics and
science. Then you look inside the learning process itself, where many
factors come into play, including what is being learned and the
context, along with the emotions, motivations, and goals of the
learner. You close by considering individual differences. Some people
seem to learn without effort. How do they do it? Tips on Learning
Along the way, Professor Pasupathi offers frequent advice on how to
excel in many different learning situations: Mastering material:
Testing yourself is a very effective strategy for mastering difficult
material. Try taking a blank sheet of paper and writing down
everything you can recall about the subject. Then go back and review
the material. Next, try another blank sheet of paper. Second-language
learning: Becoming fluent in a second language in adulthood is
difficult because your brain is tuned to your native language and
misses important clues in the new language. To overcome this obstacle,
immerse yourself among native speakers of the new language. Motivating
a child: When trying to motivate a schoolchild to learn, avoid
controlling language, create opportunities to give the child a sense
of choice, and be careful about excessive praise and other forms of
rewards, which can actually undermine learning. Maintaining a learning
edge: Middle-aged and older adults can preserve their learning
aptitude by exercising to maintain cardiovascular health, staying
mentally active, and periodically trying a new challenge, such as
learning to draw or studying new dance steps. Adventures in Learning
Winner of prestigious teaching awards from her universitys chapter of
Psi Chi, the National Honor Society in Psychology, Dr. Pasupathi
brings todays exciting field of learning research alive. Her
descriptions of ongoing work in her field, in which she is a prominent
participant, are vivid and insightful, allowing you to put yourself
into a given experiment and ask, "How would I react under these
circumstances? What does this tell me about my own approach to
learning?" By the time How We Learn ends, you will appreciate the
incredible breadth of what we learn in our lifetimes, understand the
commonality and diversity of human learning experiences, and come away
with strategies for enhancing your own adventures in learning.
"Learning is a human birthright," says Professor Pasupathi.
"Everything about us is built for lifelong learning--from our
unusually long childhood and our large prefrontal cortex to our
interest in novelty and challenge." And she finds reason for optimism
about the future of humanity due to our almost miraculous capacity to
learn. About Your Professor Dr. Monisha Pasupathi is Associate
Professor of Psychology at the University of Utah. She holds a Ph.D.
in Psychology from Stanford University. She joined the faculty at Utah
in 1999 after completing a postdoctoral fellowship at the Max Planck
Institute for Human Development in Germany. Professor Pasupathi has
been honored multiple times for her teaching. She was named Best
Psychology Professor by her universitys chapter of Psi Chi, the
National Honor Society in Psychology. Psi Chi also awarded her the
Outstanding Educator Award and Favorite Professor Award. Professor
Pasupathis research focuses on how people of all ages learn from
their experiences, particularly through storytelling. She is coeditor
of Narrative Development in Adolescence: Creating the Storied Self,
and her work has been published widely in scholarly journals.
