    Our brains have an incredible and inexhaustible capacity to store information. Every day, they store vast amounts of our impressions, our experiences, all kinds of data. The main problem arises when we really need some information that’s in our memory and we need to call it up from our memory store. The key to effective and practical memorization lies in “awareness” of this automatic process and control over it. Just as we train our bodies and become physically stronger, we can also improve our memory through regular exercise and nutrition.


    At the workshop, you will learn:

    • basic memory principles,
    • specific memory techniques that you can immediately apply in your daily life,
    • exercises to improve concentration and attention,
    • strategies to improve concentration skills.

    TEACHING STYLES AND TYPES (4 school hours)

    A good motivation to learn and a good learning style are the key to successful learning and significantly contribute to better results.

    At the workshop, you will learn:

    • What kind of learner are you
    • You will learn about your personal learning style and what is characteristic of your learning
    • You will identify which of the seven intelligences are dominant in you and which learning styles are appropriate for you
    • You will learn about the characteristics of adult learning, how to change negative attitudes about your own ability to learn and how to increase motivation to learn

    PARENT’S HELP IN CHILDREN’S LEARNING (4 or 8 school hours)

    All parents know the dilemmas we face when we have children at school. There are few children who do not encounter problems in learning and understanding school material. Almost every student needs help with learning, but what kind and how much time depends on the individual child. Most of the time, children resist learning because they do not master the appropriate strategies to be able to learn successfully.

    And how can parents help with this?

    At the workshop, you will learn:

    • how to motivate your child to learn,
    • what your child’s learning type is,
    • teaching techniques for different learning types,
    • how to effectively plan your child’s learning,
    • what your child’s learning style is and how to improve it,
    • how parents help their child to learn successfully (recommended behaviour, discouraged behaviour),
    • how to help a child who has difficulty with learning.

      SUCCESSFUL PASSING OF EXAMS (2 school hours)

      The goal of every student is to complete the learning of a subject by successfully passing an exam. It often happens that we feel uncomfortable before the exam, sometimes we even panic. The fear of exams can be controlled.
      At the workshop, you will learn:
      • strategies to help you with your memmory,
      • how to plan for an exam,
      • how to prepare effectively for an exam,
      • tips for more effective writing, practical and oral exams,
      • how to manage daily stress, and how to cope with test anxiety.


      Effective learning presupposes the active role of the learner in the learning process. This is only possible when the learner has knowledge of how to tackle the learning material, how to organise learning in the environment and how to take into account our own learning specificities.

      At the workshop, you will learn:

      • how to develop strategies for self-learning planning (organization of the learning space, learning planning based on one’s own biorhythm, preferred perception, cognition and learning style),
      • how to design learning objectives and one’s own performance criteria (defining short and long-term learning goals, anticipated learning barriers),
      • how to effectively process material in a time-saving manner,
      • how to learn with effective reading techniques,
      • what good and quality notes are to help you learn,
      • how to mind map and how to learn from it.
