In this presentation, students learn how to prepare for an exam as effectively as possible through planning and the use of evidence-based study techniques.

They also learn techniques they can apply during the actual exam to manage their time, provide good answers, and succeed with tasks that may initially appear unsolvable.

Students who use good study techniques learn more, achieve better results, and are more motivated. Perhaps that's why the EU calls "learning to learn" a core competency. In this course, teachers receive a comprehensive introduction to how they can teach students to learn by promoting students' metacognition (reflection on their own learning) and the use of various learning strategies.

"Informative, relevant, clear, and entertaining. Olav's presentation on effective learning is highly recommended." 


Two years ago, I attended Olav's workshop on effective learning. I had been a B-student with for a long time, but this lecture was really a great inspiration to me. Within a few months, I dropped the "get through the book as quickly as possible" study technique and started using the various study techniques he presented. For the first time, I experienced a genuine understanding of the subjects, and it eventually showed in the grades as well.

Despite the fact that I worked several days a week, was heavily involved in sports and student activities, I improved my grade point average to 5.63 out of 6.00 on my transcript. It was a wonderful feeling when I was admitted to the law school!
