the concepts and idea they use are actually helpful there are still more we can use such as tension release techniques can help those who have stress and not end up in the theory of burnout.

Wish this course was around when I was an undergraduate

this online course is very pleasurable and interesting.

It will help me in my life and my job by changing the way i think about learning and brain.

Content was well presented. The reading of the teleprompter was sometimes awkward and distracting, but ended up being an exercise in focus in itself. I feel like there could have been more description or examples of actually consciously creating a "chunk", as opposed to the more theoretical description of what it is and how it works... something to research, I suppose. Thanks much!
