Train Your Brain to Learn Faster and Remember More

How can I read faster and how can I train my brain to memorize more? These and more questions will be tackled with on the 12th and 13th of May in the workshop »Reading and Memo Techniques« in Zittau. The trainer, Kathy Meyer-Ross, researched several years on reading and Mnemo-techniques and has taught Speed Reading techniques to many researchers.

Students and scientists often have to read and remember enormous amounts of material. This may cost more time than necessary. How can they read faster? Do you have an insider tip?

Practice! However, in this workshop, participants learn how to apply special reading techniques in order to be able to read a lot faster but also more thoroughly, without missing out on content comprehension. The workshop contains lots of hands-on work with many exercises and tests, enabling participants to try out and learn Speed Reading techniques here and now, as well as use them for themselves in the future.

Can you train to memorize more for longer or for good?

YES! There is an array of memory skills, which tackle the process of organizing and taking in new information, retaining information, or dealing with assessments. They include mnemonics, which aid the retention of lists of information, and concentration techniques, as well as efficient note taking.

What will you offer in the workshop  »Reading and Memo Techniques« on the 12th and 13th of May in Zittau? What can participates expect?

Fun! Interactive sessions and the sensation of being able to read faster!
Reading is a complex cognitive process of decoding symbols in order to construct or derive meaning (reading comprehension). It is a complex interaction between the text and the reader. Certain techniques, like SQR, SQ3R, SQ4R, rational reading, productive and reproductive reading and others will be introduced and in a practical part trained.
During an interactive session students will learn e.g. how to use mind mapping for note taking, what are mnemonics and how and when to use them, or which techniques are the best for the students type of study, as in visual, haptic, auditive, and communicative.
