“Learners are made, not born.”

Check out the recent Harvard Business Review article by Ulrich Boser
Learning Is a Learned Behavior. Here’s How to Get Better at It.

Key Points:

“Learners are made, not born.”
Self criticism hurts, an organized, metacognitive approach helps, and reflection is critical.
“It’s a matter of asking ourselves questions like: Do I really get this idea? Could I explain it to a friend? What are my goals? Do I need more background knowledge? Or do I need more practice?”
“By deliberately organizing your learning goals, thinking about your thinking, and reflecting on your learning at opportune times, you can become a better study, too.”
