As humans, we’re often remarkably bad at regulating our own learning. We ignore research-backed strategies for effective learning like varying our study environments or interleaving topics because they often appear to slow the rate of learning in the short-run. What’s more, our schools are in the practice of testing knowledge, as opposed to testing whether we have the skills to learn, even though learning how to learn is more important than ever. Read this paper to understand what makes a good learner and how we might encourage good learning skills in our students and in ourselves.

“Are our schools and universities adequately prepared to educate young people for future challenges? Young scientists around the world express their concerns about:
- The disconnect between humans and nature.
- The models of education that do not teach students to learn to collaboratively design creative solutions to complex problems.
- The lack of self-regulation in a world of digital temptations.
- Lack of equal access to knowledge.
- The (underdeveloped) art of communicating science’s relevance to the world around us and its application to societal issues.
… plus social responsibility, creativity, and critical thinking.”
