Podcast: Learning to Learn: Barbara Oakley

If you’re not sure about the staying power of the world-wide interest in practical applications of neuroscience to build better lives, talk to Dr. Barbara Oakley. Her course on Learning to Learn has reached over a million people and is still gaining momentum. I recently took Barbara’s outstanding MOOC (Massive Online Open Course) on Coursera and was mesmerized by her obvious enthusiasm for her work. Barbara had a chance to indulge our “geek girl” tendencies as we talked about the brain, plasticity and intentional brain transformation (another term for “learning.”)
