Ultimately teachers strive to help their students 'learn how to learn'.  This is the topic of a free online course from Coursera. 

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, July 30, 7:57 PM

Este curso MOOC elaborado por la  Universidad de California en San Diego te enseña a como  aprender a aprender . Así como estos hay miles de cursos gratuitos a los que se puede acceder desde cualquier plataforma en línea. Uno elige lo que necesita en función de sus necesidades de aprendizaje. Si no se quiere entender que ello cambiara la enseñanza superior en pocos años, es estar ciego a lo que se viene. No hay futuro para la educación tradicional, no para el 90% de las instituciones educativas actuales si no cambian radicalmente su modelo educativo.
