Learning to Learn Better ! – une histoire du Singapour

Abstract

Learning to Learn Better (L2LB) “apprendre à apprendre mieux” is the flagship course offered by NUS ALSET. LTLB examines research and longstanding wisdom from the learning sciences. The course helps students avoid common misconceptions about learning and develop evidence-based study practices. We demonstrate to learners using in-class experiments on how best learning practices can sometimes be counterintuitive. L2LB was also adapted as a course for 83 working adults in 2018. The course mostly supported coaches and teachers in their vocational training. To this date, LTLB has reached over 500 students and alumni in 2019. We also partnered with the Institut Villebon Georges Charpak in Orsay, France to launch LTLB for their 90 undergraduates. In this seminar, we will provide you an overview how we educators could reflect and incorporate effective and evidenced-based learning strategies into our own educational programmes and classrooms, to help our students learn better.
