Episode 2: A Symposium on Mind Over Matter – The Science of Learning Power

Episode 2 in the series of Demystifying ZQ for Students

This symposium is the second episode in a series of ten symposia entitled Demystifying ZQ and it’s aimed at students, parents, teachers and other stakeholders in education. During this symposium, we’ll look at learning power and its key components as well as a quotient that measures it. We’ll discuss how students can improve their ability to learn in a wide range of contexts, using diverse methods and strategies. We’ll look at the necessary skills and dispositions that enable students to face challenges, pursue new knowledge, learn from their mistakes and persist in their efforts to achieve their goals, contribute to society and flourish in the 21st century.

The symposium aims to address questions such as:

  • Points
