Creating systems allows us to step back, look at who is observing, and see the space between the observer and the tangled knowledge from different sources. This, in turn, can unlock creative thinking, as in connecting the dots from seemingly different disciplines. In the domain of university, or college, or higher education, whatever you intend to call it, systems for learning are grounded on some key pillars, as far as I can tell:
1. Active recall
2. Spaced Repetition
3. The 80/20 rule
4. The Dunning Kruger Effect
The university system developed in Notion is composed of two main parts: a University page in which all the databases are stored (backend); and a University Hub in which all the essential information is displayed, and where the action takes place.
A minimal system for intentionally learning and developing as a person: Courses, Spaced Repetition, a Hub where to keep everything organized in one place.
