    The Art of Self-Directed Learning

  • Manifesto

    Would you love to pick up a new skill?
    Have you ever tried teaching yourself something and then either gave up completely or paid a lot of money to go to classes where results still aren't guaranteed?
    I feel you.
    Here are the key principles of self-directed learning.

    Charlotte Zhao

    Chief Growth Officer

    A director at codebar.io, self-taught software engineer, coach, speaker, and globetrotter, with a keen passion advocating for self-directed learning and emotional wellbeing. Busy creating a safe place for adult learners to find inspirations and become empowered to teach themselves new skills. We'll challenge traditional schooling and inspire more people to become modern-day Renaissance women and men!
    I am on a 1-year experiment: 365 days of applying my learning methods to acquire different skills of my interest. I’ll document the journey and openly share the successes and failures, also musings on the funny thing called life. Please follow me and see how I structure these self-directed learnings. Let's grow together!

    Last day: live sketchnote a Ted Talk

    Challenge had to be broken down into 2 parts, because I have something else came up that would require my full attention, and then I want to take a couple of day off before diving back into the challenge :)
