Sharing one’s knowledge, skills, and talents to the country’s education hub of future leaders is a pride for MindGym Philippines. This August 18, 2011, through a two-hour interactive group session, MindGym Philippines memory coach Albert A. Basa will share with students of the University of the Philippines (UP) memory techniques to help them get an edge in class through efficient memory retention and effective recall. The session encapsulates basic techniques taught in MindGym’s 15-hour Memory Advantage Workshop (MAW) for small groups. Through fun learning activities, coach Albert will give students just enough feel of how to quickly memorize a string of words and numbers through techniques like association, chaining and visualization.
Entitled “Forget Me Not“, this mini memory advantage workshop is sponsored by the UP Samahan sa Agham Pampulitika (UP SAPUL) as its contribution to the university-wide ACLE (Alternative Classroom Experience) held every semester. Students’ attendance to an ACLE session may be credited towards partial fulfillment of requirements for selected courses taken by students during the semester.
MindGym’s involvement in UP ACLE jibes with its corporate aim of engaging in nonformal, nontraditional, lifelong learning training pursuits.
