Founded in 1887, McMaster University is one of only five Canadian universities (and one of only two in Ontario) consistently ranked among the Top 100 in the world by the major global ranking systems.
A medical-doctoral, research-intensive university, McMaster is dedicated to teaching, learning, and service. In the 1960s, we pioneered the problem-based approach to learning that came to be known around the world as "the McMaster model".
Course: Mindshift: Break Through Obstacles to Learning and Discover Your Hidden Potential
Starts on 25 September 2017
About this course
Mindshift is designed to help boost your career and life in today’s fast-paced learning environment. Whatever your age or stage, Mindshift teaches you essentials such as how to get the most out of online learning and MOOCs, how to seek out and work with mentors, the secrets to avoiding career ruts (and catastrophes) and general ruts in life, and insights such as the value of selective ignorance over general competence. We’ll provide practical insights from science about how to learn and change effectively even in maturity, and we’ll build on what you already know to take your life’s learning in fantastic new directions. This course is designed to show you how to look at what you’re learning, and your place in what’s unfolding in the society around you, so you can be what you want to be, given the real world constraints that life puts on us all. You’ll see that by using certain mental tools and insights, you can learn and do more - far more - than you might have ever dreamed!
This course can be taken independent of, concurrent with, or subsequent to, its companion course, Learning How to Learn. (Mindshift is more career focused, and Learning How to Learn is more learning focused.)
