Rated 4 out of 5 by from Encouraged me to re-examine my beliefs The lecture got me interested in challenging some of my own beliefs about my learning preferences - the soccer example for instance - and I found it worthwhile. I would watch the full course if it was made available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very clear material I have some background knowledge on learning strategies as I'm a linguist and language teacher, and this pilot challenged some preconceptions many of my students (and myself, to be honest) have when faced with learning difficulties. I'm very interested in the rest of the lecture!
