Learning to Learn

In school, students are taught a multitude of subjects. Ranging from Calculus, to Biology to English Literature.

They learn to solve equations, write essays and the history of the world. Yet, students are never taught how to learn or the magic of learning.

University students graduate knowing a lot, but without the knowledge of how to learn without a teacher. Throughout my education, I have not come across a course or curriculum with the goal of equipping students on how to simply learn.

With the rapidly changing world and pace of innovation in the workplace, it is estimated that close to 85% of jobs that will exist in 2030 have yet to be invented.

The internet was invented a mere 36 years ago and has completely transformed the business world. Students that learn how to learn will be better suited to navigate the inevitable transformation of their careers.
