I just listened to the Robb Wolf, Paleo Solution Podcast episode #249 with Barbara Oakley, professor of engineering at Oakland University. It’s about learning how to learn and was pretty informative.
Here’s a great quote from his guest: …” in the education literature, it’s the same sort of morass of very different, wildly divergent claims where people often really put forth claims that are not substantiated very well yet everybody jumps on board because they sound very good. And a recent incredibly important study was just published. They found that 0.13%, at 0.13% of all education literature is actually replicated. So that means pretty much people go out, they publish and nobody ever checks them.”
