Contrary to popular belief, we know a lot about how people learn! And you can know a lot, too.
I distill decades of research in education and provide you with key insights to help you learn, teach, or engage with science through these resources below.
COURSE | LIES ABOUT LEARNING
This is my course on common myths in learning through Knowable. Knowable works with experts to make short audio courses on popular topics. There's Mark Bittman (chef, NYTimes writer), Scott Kelly (astronaut), and uh... me. Plus a lot of other people you probably know.

COURSE | HOW SCIENCE WORKS
Will Ben ever stop making audio courses? Yeah.. I've probably reached my limit.
This course from Listenable is on what we know about how science works. It draws on the philosophy, history, and sociology of science because I love that stuff.
You can also read it through daily emails with Highbrow.
SURVEY SAYS... HOW TO WRITE SURVEYS TO GET THE INFORMATION YOU WANT
A huge part of learning, especially in our work environment, is collecting information. How do you make sure your surveys provide sound data?
Distilling fifty years of research on how to write surveys effectively, this guide gives you all of the information you need to collect valuable data, not nonsense. From choosing correct question types to avoiding response bias, you can't write your next survey without this.
I read a lot of books on learning, science, and technology. This is my list of recommended reading:
Have you read book that didn't make the list? I'd love to hear about it.
