Learn in Brain-Friendly Ways: How To Succeed with Quality Learning Skills.
Klimes, Rudolf E.
This book for students describes Quality Learning or QLearn, a "brain-friendly" learning strategy that involves five types of learning-skill modules. QLearn is described as a "brain-friendly" system of multi-channel learning, designed for secondary, university, adult students and trainees in business and industry. Under the system learners apply five types of learning-skill modules (objectives, resources, micro-learning, macro-learning, and measurements) to a given learning project at a selected or prescribed pace. Part I introduces the five concepts that support QLearn in detail. A section on objectives presents two objective focus techniques. The section on resources offers techniques for utilizing books, audiovisuals, and computer searches. The third section is on micro-learning and explains memory, note-taking and other skills. The fourth section is on macro-learning including graphic techniques, problem solving, teamwork, and reporting. The fifth section covers learning measurement including reviews, tests, and portfolio approaches. Part II presents 16 learning skill modules. Part III shows how the reader can design his/her own system of QLearn. Part IV contrasts "mislearning" with QLearn and serves as an overview of QLearn. Includes information on the author, feedback request, and an index. (Contains 90 references.) (JB)
