Excerpts from the Wixted Interview

 

The following are excerpts from an interview of Dr. John Wixted.  Dr. Wixted is the Chairman of the Department of Psychology at the University of California San Diego.  Dr. Wixted is being asked questions regarding his views on the learning methods I have developed.  Dr. Wixted was one of my professors when I was a student at UCSD and is my chief scientific advisor.

During the interview, you will hear the moderator refer to the ALR learning methods.  ALR stands for Applied Learning Research, my company.  The moderator's microphone was not well adjusted and his voice is often difficult to hear.  Consequently, the questions he asked Dr. Wixted are included as text in the video list below.

 Video 01.  Dr. Wixted introduces himself.

 Video 02.  “What are some of the biological changes that occur when we learn something?”

Video 03.  “How does that translate to long term memory?”

Video 04.  “So, this is how we learn new material?”

Video 05.  “Can anyone master the ALR method of learning?”

 Video 06.  “Is it easy to learn something like that for the average person?”

Video 07.  “Compared to the methods that are used today to teach children, what do you think of the ALR method in contrast?”

Video 08.  “What else would you say about the ALR method?”

Video 09.  “How would you approach a teacher in explaining this method?”

Video 10.  “Is this method more effective in one field of study or another?"

Video 11.  “How efficient is the ALR method in speed of acquisition of learning?”

Video 12.  “Any final words you have to say about the ALR system?”
