Richard Feynman, the Nobel Prize-winning physicist, is considered one of the most brilliant scientists in the post-WW2 era. He is known for his work on quantum electrodynamics (QED), pioneering quantum computing and introducing the concept of nanotechnology. Feynman was a one-of-a-kind and charismatic figure—a self-described ‘curious character” who made complicated concepts simple, accessible, and understandable to students and general audiences.
We want students to go beyond rote learning, genuinely understand the materials taught, and become independent thinkers. In STEM education, this is particularly important, and by the Feynman Technique of Learning and Möbius, we can make complex subjects Knowable. In this recorded webinar, we discuss:
- The pitfalls of successful learning which include deception, heuristics, dictionaries and cramming
- How to overcome these pitfalls using the principles outlined in Feynman’s Techniques of Learning
- How you can use Feynmann’s methods with Möbius to facilitate learning in STEM subjects
