[This episode is from the Leading Learning archives. Most of it was originally published as Episode 104.] When it comes to engaging learners and designing truly effective learning experiences, it may not be as complex—or costly—as you may think.

Dr. Barbara Oakley, professor, speaker, and author of Mindshift: Break Through Obstacles to Learning and Discover Your Hidden Potential and Learning How to Learn: How to Succeed in School Without Spending All Your Time Studying has proven this in her research and the wildly popular massive open online course (MOOC) she created, Learning How to Learn. With more than 2 million participants in the Coursera course thus far (yes, 2 million!), Barb’s work proves that learners appreciate practical methods and materials grounded in research about how the brain learns.

In this encore episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Celisa talks with Barb about why helping people learn about learning is so effective, the importance of creating better online materials, and tips for organizations who provide learning to create more value by focusing on these areas.
